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. In our Academy, everyone who wants to develop themselves in (inclusive) theatre is welcome, from beginners to professionals. We offer courses and develop a methodology for making inclusive theatre in our Centre of Knowledge. Babel is supported by Gemeente Rotterdamstichting Neyenburg, Pameijer, stichting VolkskrachtNSGK and HandicapNL.
 

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