Interdisciplinair ensemble

“Hey, the theater is here. It has something to say. It dares to do something. It is colorful and beautiful and passionate and big. It is important. It is topical. It is fun. It is serious. It will touch you! Hey, you must have seen this. Hey, you will talk about it. Guy Weizman and his fantastic ensemble have created a total work of art. There is music, wonderful singing, dancing, fancy costumes, and there is a gripping story. (…) At the end: unanimous cheers, long standing applause, and lots of hugs on stage.”  – Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung “   

Guy Weizman & Roni Haver

Guy Weizman and Roni Haver have danced with companies including Batsheva Ensemble (Tel Aviv), Ultima  Vez  (Brussels), L’anònima  Imperial (Barcelona) and finally moved to Groningen (The Netherlands) to work with choreographer Itzik Galili in 1998.   

In 2002 Club Guy & Roni was founded in Groningen, and has since been touring extensively across the Netherlands and abroad with their artistic integrity and trajectory built upon the belief that the complexity of the 21st century world can no longer be described in a single language or art discipline. In 2021 Club Guy and Roni was appointed the status of a national dance company by the Dutch Ministry of Culture, making it one of the 5 largest dance companies in the Netherlands.   

Club Guy & Roni’s The Human Odyssey is an artistic trajectory through continuous co-creations with dance companies around the world attempting to trace and capture human existential pillars, enriching the discussion between cultures resulting in innovative artistic exchange and dialogue. These co-creations are artistically and culturally exciting, and the result is urgent, provoking and unique. Recent successful collaborations happened with makers and companies from Mauritania, India, Senegal and Morocco. Building on these experiences and the questions raised, the Club continues the “odyssey” with Australasian Dance Collective, as always in close collaboration with our musical partner HIIIT. 

Throughout the years Guy and Roni have been choreographers in residence in Staatstheater Oldenburg (Germany) and Tanz Mainz (Germany) as well as as well as guest choreographers for companies including Staatstheater Braunschweig (Germany), Ballet du Nord (France), Carte Blanche (Norway), The Theatre Ballet Moscow (Russia) and Gothenburg Ballet (Sweden).

Since 2017 Guy Weizman has also been the artistic director of the Groningen based theatercompany NITE: National Interdisciplinary Theater Ensemble. NITE is one of the 3 biggest theater companies in the Netherlands, structurally funded by the Dutch ministry of culture. The artistic team run both Club Guy & Roni simultaneously, forming the biggest interdisciplinary performing arts home in the Netherlands.

In all performances newly composed music is brought live to the stage performed by musicians of the ensembles of HiiiT (percussion group The Hague) and Asko|Schönberg.

Different from the other national theater companies in the Netherlands, NITE creates new repertoire: Texts are newly written and created in the interdisciplinary spectrum creating various world premieres a year.

Next to the creations of Guy Weizman, NITE creates regular work with Chilean director Manuela Infante. She created THE HUNT in 2023 and will create a new work, in coproduction with GAM – Santiago de Chile, in 2026. Besides Norwegian Rebekka Nilsson (house director @ NITE) creates various works at NITE, Det Norske Teatret (Olso, Norway), Theater Bielefeld (Germany) and others.

NITE + Club Guy & Roni continuously collaborate along the interdisciplinary spectrum, working with artists including fashion house Maison the Faux, MusicalMakers, directors Jan-Christope Gockel and Falk Richter (Münchner Kammerspiele), award winning director Eline Arbo (Norway), the Koninklijke Vlaamse Schouwburg (Royal Flemish Theatre, Brussels), Schauspielhaus Hannover (Germany) and Thalia Theater Hamburg (Germany). 

During the pandemic NITE + Club Guy & Roni opened the NITE HOTEL a virtual theatre platform housing custom made, collaborative performances and exchanges between artists and audiences. We explored cross-platform performances, delivering art at people’s doorstep and meeting them online, and hosted a 24-hour art carrousel with over 200 artists’ and their work with a 30.000+ audience.
