Hendrik Willekens (a.k.a. Dehendrik Lechat Willekens) is an artist active in the live arts scene since 2008. His formation included both an actors training in the traditional sense and a mime program that formed him in both performing and conceptualizing. He holds a master degree in the former and a bachelor degree in the latter of educations.
Since his involvement in the performance band John The Houseband (2012 and onwards), Willekens has developed a musical practice and as his artistic path unfolds it is in this field that he currently accumulates knowhow and experience. His musical activities span from those of the musician over those of the sound designer to those of the composer. In these functions Willekens has been collaborating with (among others) Anja Müller (La Mula, A beatmusical), Sarah Vanhee (Oblivion, Unforetold) and Alma Söderberg (Travail, Idioter, Deep Etude).
Since 2015 Willekens has formed the band “wowawiwa” together with Alma Söderberg.
