De Toneelmakerij

The Netherlands / Amsterdam

The Toneelmakerij, based in Amsterdam, is a theatre company for children and teenagers, as well as the adults in their lives. It is also a place for professional theatre makers – both experienced and new – from many different disciplines. We create performances and we tell stories: new ones written for us and old ones retold. We enjoy language, powerful imagery and music. We use a wide range of theatrical resources to produce theatre that is adventurous and meant to surprise.

In all our work – our plays, art education and special programmes – our starting point is the world of young people and the questions and obstacles they encounter. We have confidence in the flexibility and imagination of our audiences. We like to incorporate complex themes into our performances, while remaining transparent, humorous and playful. We reach out to our audience wherever they are – in theatres, classrooms, offbeat locations and in urban neighbourhoods.
