Karel Tuytschaever (°1985) graduated from the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp in Drama, an acting education led by Dora van der Groen. A great importance to him is the interaction between his executive work as a performer, his own research trajectory and work as a maker and his professorship. His background in drama and dance as well play a key role in this triangle. In September 2015 he founded BARRY, based on the necessity to create an environment where Karel’s hybrid work can be supported, created and spread. Since 2009 Karel is a regular instructor at the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp. He mentors, coaches acting for the dance department and motion for all drama students. From 2015 on, he started as co-coordinator of the yearly interdisciplinary research week between all departments of the School of Arts, Common Ground. Karel is regularly solicited as a coach and hosts workshops and masterclasses organized by Toneelhuis, HETPALEIS, KunstZ, theatre studio Nest, OPENDOEK, University of Antwerp, deDansPunt, Theater Zuidpool and the Amsterdam School of the Arts.
