Vision and mission
Podium of the world surrounding us
PLEIN THEATER is a unique theatre in Amsterdam Oost, offering topical and diverse programming for children, youth, and adults.
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.
Ever think about what makes a neighbourhood a closely-knit, warm, and open community? A public square, where everyone can interact each other spontaneously. It’s the heart of a neighbourhood, a familiar place where there is room for activities, discussions, and entrepreneurship. Every public square evolves with time, but also remains timeless. This is how we see PLEIN THEATER. A podium for Amsterdam Oost, offering a world-class programme for citizens of the world.
PLEIN THEATER is committed to all cultures and generations represented in our Dutch society. We carefully select diverse, local, and international programming which provides something for everyone, from entertainment to cultural interconnection. At PLEIN THEATER courageous makers can shed light on conflicts in society, and on where change is necessary.
With us, your voice can be heard in many various ways, and you will find a sympathetic ear as well. Here you’ll find your fellow man.
