Joy Delima (1994) joins the ensemble in season 20|21. In season 20|21 she will perform in the premieres of Flight 49 (director Simon Stone), Romeo and Julia (director Michiel van Erp), The hours (director Eline Arbo) and Age of Rage (director Ivo van Hove) and in the revivals of Medea and The things that pass.
Delima studied at the ArtEZ Toneelschool in Arnhem and received a nomination for the Colombina, the prize for the most impressive female supporting role in Onze Straat by Daria Bukvić at Het Nationale Theater, even before graduating in 2019. She could also be seen in various plays at Toneelgroep Oostpool, directed by Marcus Azzini, such as Allemaal Mensen and Allemaal Mensen | Umuntu. In addition, she has been touring for several seasons with her solo performance Stamboom Monologen about finding her own identity. Delima has been seen on television in Flikken Rotterdam, in the third and fourth season.
Joy Delima: ‘I still can't believe that I can join this ensemble so early after graduating. I am incredibly grateful that I am able to develop myself as an actress here, amidst such an incredible ensemble, led by Ivo van Hove. I look forward to sharing stories with them that matter. Not only in the theater, but in our society.’
