adriaan van as

Although Adriaan van As can handle the spotlight really well , He is the type of actor that would prefer to use the art form as escape. He started preforming on stage at the age of 13 , where he experienced the joy and fun in acting. At a later stage , under the right mentorship , he started seeing acting for its true form of art , and never looked back. He did not actively pursue a career in acting ,straight after college, but always remained passionately bound to the art form. As a business owner in a very different industry , Adriaan kept one foot solidly in the arts , by acting, directing , teaching , writing and creating shows to keep the flame burning. He was the franchise owner / partner and teacher for two drama schools in the lowveld called The Playhouse. During that time he wrote , produced and performed his own one man shows, like “Die Kalahari K@K Praater”. He played a small part in the all star cast of PG du Plessis’s “Seder val in Waterkloof” , directed by Albert Maritz in 2012. In 2013 he produced/ directed and acted in the well received and loved Silverskerm short film ; Die Ware Damduikers. He wrote a spin off stage version in 2014 called ; “Damduikers – Loftus Deurbraak” , that he produced and performed in, along side his good friend and business partner Francois Jacobs . Adriaan doesn’t mind getting his hands dirty , by working backstage or on set. He recently did the production management for “Frats” directed by Albert Maritz and for “People are living there” directed by Andre Odendaal. With a great understanding of the proses as a whole – from idea, to paper, to reality – he is ready to take on the arts full time and show the industry what they’ve been missing!
