The theatre belongs to the University of Amsterdam.
Design by Wim Vesseur
The theater was put into use in 1968 (design by Wim Vesseur ) as a practical space (laboratory) for the study of theater science. The stage space could facilitate a so-called fourth wall staging, an open stage, Elizabethan theater, or a black box space.
All this in addition to a long series of internal productions, in which theater students collaborated in order to build up practical experience with the rich palette of theatrical skills (directing, dramaturgy, acting, adaptations, staging, costume design, theater technique).
