Arjuna Vermeulen is PLANmaker at Boulevard

Arjuna Vermeulen is one of the three new PLANmakers who started at PLAN Brabant since January 1, 2024. At Boulevard, we have been following Arjuna for a while, and we are proud that he can further develop his talent under the wings of Boulevard.
In 2020, Arjuna danced during Theaterfestival Boulevard in Traces by Shailesh Bahoran. Here, he discovered his talent for other dance styles, his creative insight, and his expressive personality. After years of being active as a self-taught individual in the breakdance scene, Arjuna set his sights on the theater.
"Arjuna Vermeulen is a dance maker who earned his stripes as a bboy in the (Inter)national hip-hop scene. With great theatrical awareness and infinite creativity, he will search with us in the coming years for the best context to develop, create, and present his work. Arjuna seizes everything at Boulevard as an opportunity to further develop himself and can immediately translate this into productive lessons for him. He has the talent to inspire others for his work - as a pivotal figure in his hip-hop scene - but also in artistic creation processes. Arjuna is moving very fast. We will try to keep up with him in the coming years." Said Nina Aalders, Artistic coordinator Theaterfestival Boulevard.
The newest generation of theater, dance, and circus makers in Noord-Brabant will have more opportunities thanks to PLAN for talent development in Brabant, where producers, venues, and festivals collaborate. Theaterfestival Boulevard is part of the breeding ground 's-Hertogenbosch."
