welcome in Theatre Babel Rotterdam

‘A world that doesn’t feel like understanding ‘the other’, is missing out on everything what life should be about. I want a world where people who are different, aren’t put away, but where they are visible and participate in society. I create such a world with theatre.’ – Paul Röttger


Theatre Babel Rotterdam annually performs 135 shows. In the Theatre train, 35 professional actors with and without disabilities train together for 3 days a week, 30 weeks a year. Next to that, they rehearse and perform in our productions. Regular shows like ‘From J. to Jessica‘, educational shows like ‘Sex in Rotterdam‘, or theatre ateliers in which the encounter with the other is the central theme. As Cultuurhuis Delfshaven, we organize cultural activities in and for the neighborhood. In our Centre of Knowledge, we develop a methodology for making inclusive theatre. Babel is supported by Gemeente Rotterdamstichting Neyenburg, Pameijer, stichting VolkskrachtNSGK and HandicapNL.

Babel works at two locations: Mathenesserdijk 293 and Eendrachtsstraat 81.
