Pepijn Ronaldo wins Theaterprijs

Pepijn Ronaldo won the Theaterprijs for ‘Most appreciated performance under 30’ last weekend. After a wildly exciting round of voting, the young performer came out on top. The Acteursgilde surprised Pepijn with the prize while he was still on stage.

The 23-year-old talent from the well-known circus family won this award for his acting performance in the tragicomic Sono Io?, which he performs with his father, Danny Ronaldo. The performance was also nominated for the Theaterprijs in the ‘Most appreciated ensemble play’ category.

The jury of De Acteursgilde praised not only the perfect symbiosis between father and son, but also the fact that Pepijn has perfect control over his body, voice and emotions.

Below are some quotes from the jury report:

“Pepijn creates his own language that works universally. He takes the audience in tow, always with great integrity. He knows how to play the audience perfectly with his well-played physicality and open, honest look. With his enormous dose of playfulness, which has an endearing effect on the audience, he makes you laugh one moment to leave you watching a stunt with wonder and then he leaves you orphaned with a melancholic aftertaste.”

We hereby congratulate Pepijn on his award and are extremely proud to welcome this young talent to Festival Circolo 2022. Come and see the award-winning performance Sono Io? on 22, 23, 24 or 25 October at Spoorpark Tilburg.
