    Frank Vercruyssen

    Frank Vercruyssen (1965, Belgium) trained as an actor at the Conservatory of Antwerp (KVMCA), where he graduated with the First Prize.

    In 1989 he co-founded the STAN company, a collective that has created more than 80 shows in 30 years, borrowing from all kinds of repertoire, working in many countries, contexts and languages. He also participates as an actor in several films and television series.

    Finally, he taught theater in various schools in Europe including ENSATT Lyon, P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels, ESTBA in Bordeaux or the Dramatic Academy in Stockholm.

    He regularly collaborates with La Manufacture as a guest speaker for themed workshops of several weeks, or as a director. In particular, he created the graduation show of the promotion H of the Bachelor Théâtre, entitled "Si seulement j'avais une mobylette, j'aurais pu partir loin de tout ce merdier...".
