Theater De Garage

After working in many different spaces, TiNaNiNaNi transformed their garage into a studio/ theater space. With the aim to create a space for cultural evenings, performances and exhibitions. We also use the space for rehearsals and classes. 

It is possible to use our space. We stimulate creations, sharings and developments in the arts. If you want we can organize a performance in the theater. We are open for new ideas and collaborations. Please send us a massage for more information.
