The Ro Theater is one of the three largest Dutch theatre companies, firmly rooted in its home city of Rotterdam, with a permanent ensemble and an innovative repertoire for large and medium-sized theatres. The company presents a modern and varied repertoire by a range of theatre makers for different audience groups. The artistic director of the Ro Theater is Alize Zandwijk. The actors of the ensemble, the designers and other directors all make important contributions to the identity and the recognition of the company.
In Rotterdam, the Ro Theater forms an integral part of the city’s cultural identity, giving performances in the Rotterdamse Schouwburg, in its own theatre and on tour. The company’s own theatre is its creative home base. The public is welcome there on a regular basis; for performances and presentations, the Warehouse of Happiness (the meeting place for inquisitive fellow citizens) or its own mini festival: the Ro Theater Week. Abroad, the Ro Theater is perceived as an important ambassador of Dutch theatre.
