Vision and mission
Podium of the world surrounding us
PLEIN THEATER is the Podium of the world surrounding us, a space with an unconventional and varied program for everyone. We offer performances for children, youth and adults and - in addition to being a performance space - we’re also an internationally-oriented experimental theatre and a producing and a collaborating theatre.
Our theatre house operates on the concept of a public square, a non-conditional space within a defined area. A public square reflects the soul of a community and has an ever-changing daily dynamic, with both organized and ad hoc activities.
Many roads lead to the theatre
A place where international and local perspectives join hand in hand.
Where there is room for experiment, equality and inclusiveness prevail.
(Neighbourhood) residents create (performances),
citizenship acquires a modern meaning,
and courageous makers can make their voices heard.
A place where the cultural community can be multiform,
and change emerges from artistic propositions.
Where cultural entrepreneurship and personal encounters go hand in hand.
Where openness and security merge,
the spirit of the times is palpable and visible,
and the makers are provided with a creative space,
like the openness of a public square.
