Elvis Peeters is a musician, performer, playwright, and scenario writer. His stories have been collected in Brancusi (1999) and Calvados (2001). His first novel Spa (1998) describes the strange encounter between a man and a woman in a hotel in a Belgian spa. In his performances, Peeters demonstrates his concern for the major problems of our time. In his writing, he often gives his characters a strongly existential consciousness and places them in isolation and alienation. His second, widely acclaimed novel De ontelbaren (‘The Uncountables’) was nominated for both the De Gouden Uil and the Libris Literature Prize.
