After the upcoming theater season choreographer Guy Weizman will become the new general and artistic director of the Noord Nederlands Toneel. He succeeds the departing Ola Mafaalani. Guy Weizman will continue in his current post of artistic director and choreographer at dance company Club Guy & Roni. Weizman made his debut last season as a theater director with the NNT with the very successful play De Twaalf Gezworenen (The Twelve Jurors).
In 2002, Weizman founded, together with Roni Haver (both of Israeli descent), the international dance group Club Guy & Roni in Groningen. They produce quirky and explosive dance theater; with mysterious and seductive musical performances that reach far beyond dance alone. Weizman is always looking to collaborate with other disciplines± with theater producers, actors, writers, composers, musicians and film and video artists. Club Guy & Roni had great success in recent years with shows like Alpha Boys (nominated for the Swan 2011), L’Histoire du Soldat (2013 winner Golden Mask Award in Russia), Midnight Rising (winner best dance Swan 2013) and Naked Lunch (winner Swan best dance performance in 2014 for Igor Podsiadły).
