Waar het over gaat

An investigation into identity and self-awareness

Valerie Gwyneth Lai (NL)

After completing her bachelor’s degree in medicine, Valerie Lai (1999, Hong Kong) started the bachelor of musical theatre at Codarts Hogeschool voor de kunsten, where she will graduate in 2024. Last season, Valerie starred as Ilse Neumann in Spring Awakening and current season she can be seen in Jesus Christ Superstar as ensemble and cover Mary.
Apart from being an actress, Valerie is a theatre maker and songwriter. She is currently working on her EP and the further development of her solo performance Waar het over gaat (What it’s about).

The new generation in the spotlights
Saturday 25 May, new musical theater makers reveal their work to an audience at the Kaap. At Theater Walhalla and Conny Janssen Danst, among others, a diverse group of makers will gather for a day full of creativity, talent and energy. Some have only just graduated, others are about to leave school, and a few have left school longer ago. One thing they have in common is a bold take on musical theatre. From a rebellious, feminist reinterpretation of a classic play to a relentless crash test of traditional musical, the variety is wide. All of these creators are ready to shatter the status quo and redefine the world of music theatre.

“This graduation performance moved me and I found it very impressive.” – Anne van de Wetering, festival dramaturge O.
