About electricity and theatre

The striking building was designed by the famous municipal architect J.A. Mulock Houwer as a coal-fired power station,which provided the entire city of Groningen with electricity until 1936. Due to the building being listed as city monument, its exterior has remained untouched.But once inside an entire new world unfolds.The former turbine hall and boiler-house have become a theatre seating 160.And of course there are other facilities as well, such as a rehearsal room, wardrobe department, offices, a canteen and two foyers.From basement to workshop, every single bit of the building has served as stage to productions.
