Foundation de LuiaardVrouwe
was founded on May 12, 1989 in Dordrecht, The Netherlands, to bring
to life the artistic thoughts and ideas of Patrizia Filia. Her work
is the heart and soul of the foundation. In the multiple roles of
director, writer and artistic leader, she is able to give her artistic
views form and brings these forth in her theatre productions.
Her view of her fellow human beings can be considered
as religious humanist: when hardships threaten to overwhelm us,
ultimately one must look to oneself.
The underlying currents in the performances of
Patrizia Filia are fraught with human loneliness, so ingrained,
combined with the desire to expose the hidden and participate in
the eternal and infinite.
Practically speaking, her starting point is in
her theatre productions, which embody this human loneliness, which
give displaced people of various cultures a voice, which try to
reconcile our lot in life with expression in theatre. Her performances
are almost always sober and true. Intense is how the public and
the press describe her work.
The mission of the
“To exist to be able to realize the artistic ideas
of Patrizia Filia and others appointed by her”
