About Director

Karel Tuytschaever (BE, °1985) graduates in 2007 from the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp in the Drama, an acting education led by Dora van der Groen. To date, Karel works as a freelance actor for theatre, film and television series. You can also hear him in voice work for TV and radio.

Since 2008, he is a lecturer at the Bachelor programs in Drama and in Contemporary Dance at the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp / AP University College and is a member of the dance training mentor team. He is regularly solicited as a coach and hosts workshops and masterclasses organized by theatre studio Nest, OPENDOEK, University of Antwerp, deDansPunt, Let’s Go Urban Academy, scenography education KASKA, Zuidpool, Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, The Amsterdam School of the Arts & Fontys School of the Arts.

In 2015 BARRY is founded on the need to create an environment where Karel’s hybrid own work can be developed, be made and be distributed. Since 2019, BARRY (BE) has a long-term collaboration together with DansBrabant (NL).

As of 2020, he is a researcher in the arts at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, with the support of the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp. His research is a tipping point in which he wants to graft his vision on what sincere embodiment within performative art is, and can be, on to the visual arts. He looks at how he arrives at new intermedial relationships and forms, further develops his vision and explores its scope.

Of great importance to him is the cross-pollination interaction between his performing, his lecturing, and his research and work as a maker. His fascination for embodiment and physicality within the arts plays a key role in this triangle.

Film Overview

An unexpected moment in a session with a client confronts a psychologist with his own inner world. Alienated by the isolation of his seemingly perfect city life, the psychologist encounters an extreme inability to understand and embrace his own human nature. His inescapable desires for his male client force the psychologist to look at who he does not want to be. It is the only way that he can find out who he really is.

EASY TIGER is an intimate portrait of a vulnerable man during a true and insurmountable romance.

This author’s film examines how the medium of film can be commemorated and used to place physicality as a narrative in front of the lens, and how the same audiovisual work can provide, as much as possible, the same experience for both hearing and non/partially-hearing viewers.
