With Tibaldus, Timeau De Keyser made the impressive Paard: een opera (2010), and, in collaboration with Theater Stap, 4:3 (2012). Shortly thereafter came Persona (2013). After these first productions, which were more abstract, in the last few years there has been a renewed interest in ‘acting’, and the focus is now on ‘the actor’ again. In the work of the Polish author Witold Gombrowicz, Tibaldus found the right material for further developing their style. In September 2016 their staging of Gombrowicz’s Yvonne premiered in the Bourla theatre. “The combination of Gombrowicz’s Yvonne, Prinses van Bourgondië is a match made in heaven, both for the performers and the spectators,” said Jasper Delbecke in Etcetera. During Love at First Sight II, Tibaldus presented texts by Hans Mortelmans in the installation Nooit Opgevoerd Toneel. In the third edition of that festival the company presented Het Huwelijk, another play by Gombrowicz.
In addition to making theatre, Timeau De Keyser directs films. He made his first short film, De Reconstructie, together with Pieter Dumoulin in 2015, and in the course of 2018 the duo will be launching the feature Etangs Noirs.
