Willy (1959, BE) started as a player at the HTP collective of Jan Decorte (1981) and founded Dito’Dito in 1984. In addition to playing and making, he wrote several plays, of which B = A was awarded the national Belgian theatre award Signaalprijs in 1990. Besides sporadic collaborations with several others, Willy mainly had an intense relationship with theatre group Stan and the French-speaking company Transquinquennal with which several productions were created. Over time the work of Dito’Dito has become more and more connected to urban reality, aiming to strengthen the ties between theatre and the city. Since June 2016 Willy Thomas is artistic director of ARSENAAL/LAZARUS and together with LAZARUS he determines the artistic direction of this house.
