Davy            van            Gerven

Davy van Gerven, born in Maastricht in 1989, studied theater design at the Toneelacademie Maastricht. From 2012 to 2015, he worked as a set and costume assistant at the Münchner Kammerspiele. He has an international practice for scenography mainly in various theatrical disciplines. His practice covers a wide range of projects, from collaborative theatrical projects to installations resulting from independent artistic research.

The main theme of his designs is the translation of literary or other content into engaging spatial interventions. His work emphasizes interaction, with both audiences and performers playing pivotal roles within the environments he creates. His scenographies foster a dialogue between the space and its users, making each experience unique and immersive.
