• Luxembourg

Born in Romania, raised in Luxembourg and trained at the Drama Centre London, Larisa is an award-winning writer, director and actor. Her dark, surreal and irreverent plays, monologues and stories explore a wide range of political and social issues, such as ageism and elderly abuse in care homes, reproductive issues for women, and immigration. Reflecting on the fragile cohesion of Europe, she’s also been exploring the divisions over land and property ownership in Luxembourg, and the costs to the rural poor.
