So how do you find a European theatre performer who plays a Dwarf in rural China and on top of that agrees to having it all filmed? I guess you could probably try and Google it, but I wouldn’t know where you would end up when doing so. Might be interesting to give it a try though 🙂
But that’s not how it went. This Dwarf isn’t just any Dwarf. This Dwarf is special, and more importantly: the person who performs the Dwarf, Jeanmarie Bevort, is one of the most inspiring people I’ve met in my life.
I met him nine years ago when my life wasn’t looking as bright as it does now. After high school I had started studying history. A year later I’d quit my study because I couldn’t stand the idea of reading books and making group assignments for three years in a row.

At the time I had no idea what I was in for but it turned out to be a great adventure, with some great life lessons along the way. Lessons you can’t learn at University.
