TONE BRULIN (Antwerpen, 1926)
As a former student of Herman Teirlinck at the Institut Supérieur des Arts Décoratifs de Bruxelles and then at the Nationaal Toneel Studio, he has a strong reputation in the world of theatre. This seasoned theatre professional is not only wellknown as a playwright, actor and acting instructor, but also as a director and set designer. According to Brulin, “The motivation to create art is the constant search for a better world or the search for happiness”. Nevertheless, he is convinced that people can never find happiness and will never reach perfection. All the more reason for Tone Brulin to get to work as an artist, to create dream images and to try to make these dreams come true. Tone Brulin also went off the beaten track by searching for multicultural means of expression, a way to become more cosmopolitan, more universal.
