Merlijn Huntjens (poet/performer - Heerlen, 1991) is one of the eight promising and professional talents work closely together for five weeks as part of Talent Lab 2019: a unique collaboration between VIA ZUID and Toneelgroep Maastricht. 

Merlijn Huntjens is a poet and creator at the PANDA collective of VIA ZUID. He has participated in the Dutch national Poetry Slam competition (Nederlandse Kampioenschappen Poetry Slam) three times and performed at various festivals such as Cultura Nova and the Dichters in the Prinsentuin poetry festival.
