Ilja Leonard Pfeijffer

On advice of my tutor Hans, I took a look at the poet, author and theatre maker Ilja Leonard Pfeijffer.

Here’s a short interview with him, about his newest workĀ The Pursuit of Happiness, a theatre piece about migrants.

One quote of his in this interview really confirmed what I think my goals are in creating my own theatre piece:

Wat je hoopt, in ieder geval, is om mensen wat bewuster te maken. Ik heb niet de pretentieĀ dat de voorstelling de wereldwijde immigratie probleem kan oplossen. Misschien kunnen we in ieder geval de toeschouwers van de voorstelling het cadeau geven dat zij iets beter erover nadenken.”
