Booi Kluiving is a theater maker and creates performances about digital culture and technology. After graduating from the ArtEZ Acting School, he quickly developed his own style at Theater a/d Rijn and later at Feikes Huis, where he is now a resident theater maker. Kluiving believes that the internet is a colorful and positive place and always initiates his research from personal fascinations within digital subcultures. His goal is to connect traditional theater audiences with this internet culture and, at the same time, give a voice to the internet generation on the stage.

He then created Let's Play (2020), in which a YouTuber is confronted with his traumatic past while playing video games. This was followed by De Memers (2022) and the Analoge Meme Maker© (2022), a performance and installation about internet memes. In 2023, his latest production, SatisFactory (2023), premiered, focusing on 3 ASMR-tists who slowly deteriorate due to the Oddly Satisfying content they create themselves.
