The new Theater aan de Parade will become an expressive, multifunctional building that draws on state-of-the-art practices to create a social space that works in perfect synergy with its surroundings. The new theatre will replace the existing 1976 building and is expected to open its doors to the public at the start of the 2023/2024 theatre.
Theater aan de Parade is an enriching, timeless cultural hub that will go far beyond hosting performances for theatre lovers. It will be a place where people will be able to connect with one another and enjoy a wide range of cultural and leisure activities. It is a multifunctional theatre built for the future and can be easily adapted to changes in the performing arts and innovations in staging.
The theatre does not end at the facade but instead enters into a dialogue with its surroundings. Transparent glass fronts create a natural transition from the public surroundings to the interior of the building. An inviting theatre café and a botanical outdoor foyer connect the building to the Parade ‘the main square of Den Bosch’ and offer a beautiful view of the Bossche Broek nature reserve. The building is open across the entire width at ground level, allowing a seamless shift for visitors moving between spaces.
Bastard Orange Lighting Design was commissioned to create the lighting design for all public spaces in and outside the building.
