since 2016 left the core team and now work on an adhoc basis with FC Berman. The company developed a theatrical language all of their own, which is anarchistic, slightly chaotic, and poetic. In their shows the floundering, ever-striving human being has often taken centre stage. In 2009 FC Bergman won the Young Theatre Prize at Theater Aan Zee with its adaptation of Harold Pinter’s The Homecoming. With Wandelen op de Champs- Elysées met een schildpad om de wereld beter te kunnen bekijken, maar het is moeilijk thee drinken op een ijsschots als iedereen dronken is (‘Walking along the Champs-Elysées with a tortoise so as to have a better look at the world, but it is difficult to drink tea on an ice floe if everyone is drunk’) FC Bergman was short-listed for the Dutch Theatre Festival (2010). In 2011 FC Bergman created 300 el x 50 el x 30 el at Toneelhuis, where FC Bergman is a collective in residence. In 2015 FC Bergman made a site-specific show Het land Nod (‘The Land Of Nod’). The performance was invited to participate in 2016 in the Festival d’Avignon and the Zürcher Theater Spektakel. The members of FC Bergman are individually involved in various other theatre productions, TV projects and films or make productions, installations and videos under their own name.
