Jan Fabre (Antwerp, 1958) graduated from the Municipal Institute of Decorative Arts and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. He is known nationally and internationally as one of the most innovative and versatile artists of his generation. Over the past 30 years, he has produced works as a theatrical creator, author, and visual artist. Jan Fabre is known for expanding the horizons of every genre to which he applies his artistic vision.


Jan Fabre is one of the most versatile artists on the international scene. He breaks with conventions of contemporary theater by introducing the concept of “real-time performance” – sometimes referred to as “live installations” – and explores radical choreographic possibilities as a means of reviving classical dance. Fabre has been writing his own plays since 1975, although they were first performed in 1989. His texts constitute an exceptional collection of miniatures with a very open style of writing and reflect Fabre’s concept of theater as a comprehensive art form in which dialogue functions alongside other elements such as dance, music, opera, performance, and improvisation.


Chaos and discipline, repetition and madness, metamorphosis and anonymity are essential ingredients of Fabre’s theater. In addition to age-old rituals and philosophical questions, Fabre also addresses themes such as violence, desire, beauty, and eroticism. The body in all its forms has been the subject of his research since the early 1980s. Jan Fabre’s works have been exhibited at major international exhibitions and museums, including the Venice Biennale, Documenta in Kassel, the Sao Paulo Biennale, the Louvre, and the Hermitage.
