donkerslag: (Dutch: blackout in theater lighting)


donkerslag is the brainchild//alter ego of Thijs Veerman. This website is the collection of his practice as


scenographer//performing artist//technologist//writer//theater tech//experience designer//theater maker


Thijs Veerman graduated from the Technical University of Eindhoven with a bachelor Industrial Design and continued to pursue a master of Scenography at Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht. There he graduated in 2018 with DEAFINITION_1, a scenographic installation that puzzles the viewer into a meditative state of being. His work roots in the ephemeral and experiential. Thijs' background situates him on the crossroads between technology and art. Currently his practice moves into sound and phenomenology territories with the Deafinition project.
