“Rietveld’s Daughter” is an innovative theatrical performance about the secret life of the Hollands most famous architect Rietveld. We see through the eyes of Bep, Rietvelds eldest daugther, how her father is swept up in the major Dutch art movement De Stijl, largely side-lining his family in the process. The colourful parade of characters that enters their lives not only changes the course of Rietveld’s life, but ultimately Bep’s as well.

All this is played out by a single performer, Audrey Bolder, who switches characters seamlessly from Rietveld to daughter Bep and from Rietveld’s wife to painter Charley Toorop, not to mention the comically-portrayed key individuals of De Stijl movement itself.

Brilliant! A moving and irresistible keyhole view into the life behind the renowned name.
