For its fiftieth, jubilee performance Theater Stap presents a mixed grill of theatre, film, dance, the plastic arts and everything connected with that.


For a jubilee performance the company most often look for a performance that is typical. Theater Stap also looked back to the course of 35 years. Just to realise: there isn’t anything ‘typical’.


Stock-plays, experimental dance, big performances with famous companies, small pieces for a limited audience, shortfilms, own creations, guest-directors, it was all there. We saw a few constants though: focus on the authenticity of the actors, passion and craftsmanship.

For our jubilee performance, we squat a theatre and fill the evening with short performances, film, plastic arts and animation. Every act during this evening is made or performed by a mentally disabled person. In that way we continue to do what we have been best at for more than 30 years: bringing mentally disabled actors as close as possible to an audience.
