ITA X AMMODO

Ammodo has supported International Theater Amsterdam since 2013 (and previously supported Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam and Toneelgroep Amsterdam). In 2020, this collaboration was anchored in a production partnership.

A lasting collaboration

Ammodo has been supporting the ambitions of International Theater Amsterdam for over ten years. It began with theatre festival Brandhaarden, which grew into a platform for the best international makers and companies. With Ammodo’s support, the ensemble also played in the industrial environment of the Ruhrtriennale, and several renowned theater makers such as Angélica Liddell and Isabelle Huppert were invited to the Netherlands. ITA also produced several performances which received international acclaim, such as A Little Life (2018) and Age of Rage (2021).

-|-“The long-term collaboration with Ammodo has greatly contributed to building the international position that International Theater Amsterdam now has. Ammodo’s production partnership strengthens the I in ITA.”
– Ivo van Hove, director of ITA

Production partnership

As of 2020, Ammodo is production partner of ITA, a collaboration which enables the production of several performances per year – both ITA productions and international co-productions. Thanks to this, ITA can continue to fulfill its role as a melting pot of excellent international theatre. Season 2022-2023 will see the premieres stemming from this partnership, including The Damned by Ivo van Hove, Lehman Trilogy by Guy Cassiers and Le Passé by Julien Gosselin.

-|-“ITA has an international reputation for leading the way in the performative arts. By supporting ITA’s forward-looking and state-of-the-art performances, Ammodo contributes to the advancement of theatre.”
– Juliette de Wijkerslooth, director of Ammodo
