A chameleon changes color, but it is still a chameleon. Willem also comes in different colors. But nobody knows who Willem is. Not even Willem.

Willem de Bruin confronts us with the question of what it means to grow up as a colored boy in a traditional Dutch village in the polder. He takes on different identities, which he cannot piece together. There are many versions of Willem, and he is used to adapting to situations. For each social group, he filters out an element of Willem or adds elements. His father taught him to smile at the world. What's inside, keep inside. Adapting… Willem is an expert at that.

Willem de Bruin (1985) is a musician and actor and is known for The Opposites, among other things. He released his highly acclaimed solo album Man in Nood in 2018 and made his feature film debut in Catacombe that same year. He is now making his first theater performance Spuug van God with Likeminds.
