Podium of the world surrounding us

Our repertoire consists of small-scale, intimate performances including modern dance, youth theatre, modern chamber music, and experimental theatre. On the one hand, we’ve chosen to present top theatre groups and, on the other hand, we provide young, talented makers with a platform to gain experience and to experiment. In our view, the maker plays a central role as driving force in cultural change.

In addition, our production house makes theatre projects inspired by historical and cultural themes from the world around us.

He and his team are waiting to greet you Tuesday through Sunday from 12:00 to 21:00 with coffee and sweets, lunch, and dinner.

Enjoy each other’s company inside, or outside on our lovely terrace. There is a playground for children, with plenty of toys. There are also books, games, and sidewalk chalk to play with. Inside, it’s warm and cosy in our souterrain, built in 1871 as employees’ canteen for the former Amstel Brewery complex on the Mauritskade.

And while you’re inside, be sure to check out the walls, where we exbibit the works of artists from Amsterdam Oost.
