From a very early age, Jan Tuitman, born in the northern part of the Netherlands, knew what he did not want: a normal life like he saw everywhere around him. So he created another kind of life for himself, imaginary at first, but his fantasies rapidly became reality. He made his first steps into the world of art. He sang, danced and acted on stage.
