ITA: a lighthouse for theater and dance at national and international level

The merger of Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam and Toneelgroep Amsterdam to International Theater Amsterdam (ITA) is the product of a joint vision for the future, in which a lighthouse of contemporary and international theater with a wingspan extends from the Amsterdam neighborhoods to the whole world burns in the heart of Amsterdam.

As a result of the merger, a unique theater has emerged on Leidseplein. ITA is a house where theater and company together form a large institution that programs, produces and inspires based on a contemporary vision. It is the home of an international repertoire company that manages to attract the largest international directors. In addition, we offer the best in the field of leading, large-scale, national and international theater and dance performances, in-depth programs around the shows and current affairs, youth theater and - incidentally - music theater.

We open windows and doors to bring the world in and introduce Amsterdam to them. Through the same open windows and doors we introduce the world to what Amsterdam is concerned with.

ITA is an interdisciplinary center that focuses on leading (inter) national theater makers and choreographers, contemporary theater and dance productions, supplemented with multidisciplinary theater / dance, in-depth programs around the performances and current affairs, youth theater and - incidentally - music theater.

Strong programming throughout the year, both in Amsterdam and in the rest of the Netherlands and the world, is ITA's mission. The combination of SSBA and TA in ITA creates added value through the connection of programming with production. Supply and demand are therefore perfectly matched, creating broader, all-embracing relationships with and between artists and the public; both nationally and internationally.
