Jolanda played in several major Dutch theatre productions and appeared in various Dutch television series and movies, including Black Out, De Boskampi’s and Raw Footage/ Scapegoats from visual artist Aernout Mik.

In addition to acting, Jolanda has been developing new plays for some years now. She played Sylvia Plath in a monologue based on the life of the American writer and poet. In collaboration with Sytske van der Ster, Jolanda developed and starred in Who’s Afraid of Woody Allen. Together, they continued to create NICO, a music theatre play about the lead singer of the Velvet Underground. This performance was critically acclaimed at the Theatre Festival Boulevard.

Recently, Jolanda came up with the idea and concept of De Dans Ontsprongen, a play produced by Theater Na de Dam. The production starred actor Pierre Bokma and prima ballerina Igone de Jongh and was performed at the Royal Theatre Carré. On the 9th and 10th of November there will be two additional performances of this production. 

This season, Jolanda will be performing in an onstage musical production of Stephen Sondheim’s Company, directed by Gerardjan Rijnders.


Jolanda is always a joy to work with! She adds something extra to the character. A lot of humor and a lovely timing. Bursting with energy! Love her.
— Arne Toonen, Director of Dik Trom, Black Out and De Boskampi's.
