Developing some personal projects in theatre, scenography and music, he moved from a first professional experience in deSingel (Antwerp) to Les ballets C de la B in 1996. It was the moment of the international breakthrough of this collective with Alain Platel, Christine Desmedt, Hans Van den Broeck and more.
