Lucinda Ra

Lucinda Ra is an occasional collective of nine like-minded artists from very diverse disciplines. What they all have in common is that they are moved by things that are ‘unfinished’ and unorthodox. Vincent Company supports the theatrical and visual work of two members of this collective in particular: Barbara and Stefanie Claes.

All of their performances are created outside of the safe bounds of the theatre. Societal and personal stories form the basis for their work. They will often take years to immerse themselves in the subjects they pursue. Through meetings, events and interviews, they collect material to be explored through theatre. This results in experiences that cut to the bone. Their goal is to draw conclusions, not to judge. Lucinda Ra are very much at home in the realm of chaos, fantasy and ingenuity. They cherish the richness of life – all the more for the fact that life is often hard as stone. Theatre offers them the opportunity to connect. To them, great things are always the sum of many smaller parts.

In addition to having received nominations for Het Theaterfestival and the Taalunie Toneelschrijfprijs, in spring 2022 Lucinda Ra also received the Ultima Podiumkunsten prize for their entire oeuvre. The jury commended ‘their committedly participative and respectful approach to the stories of vulnerable people and how they document the unknown from the ground up and share their findings with the public while avoiding it becoming a sort of spectacle or zoo visit.’

In the 2023–2024 season, Lucinda Ra will reprise Mia Kermis and premiere ravensbrück (25–30 October at De Studio, Antwerp). The 2024–2025 season will see Lucinda Ra reprise all of these performances and premiere the new piece Katrientje (tbc).
