It has been 5 years since Timon van der Hijden, Zowie Jannink and Steie van Vugt decided to change the scene at La Bolleur – a former brothel in the city of Eindhoven. They literally transformed this inglorious lounge and made it their own by undertaking major creative projects which the city of Eindhoven never experienced before.
La Bolleur revived and instantly became a very honourable cultural meeting place where people could get together. The atmosphere was set by establishing a fully operating (pop up) restaurant for two years in a row, plus a legendary comedy night with Hollands’ leading comedians. As well as the many performances by musicians and DJ’s, numerous movie nights and exhibitions before this re-established lounge was demolished.
In the meantime La Bolleur had become a multidisciplinary collective with a fun sense of self esteem and with five new members; Cris Bartels, Bram Burger, Ivo J. Daniëls, Mark van Gennip and Frank Winnubst. A new location presented itself rather quickly in the form of an abandoned farmhouse in the city centre of Eindhoven that was renamed – of course – La Bolleur.
