UQC is moving

The current workshop and office of Ulrike Quade Company has become to small for our fast growing company. Therefore we leave our beautiful, cozy atelier in the center behind and move to Amsterdam West for more space and new possibilities. With our move we do not only create more space for growing core of the company, but also make room for new flexible workplaces for the Q-Academy. Our new studio is located on the Jan Tooropstraat 73-75, 1061 AA Amsterdam. We hope to see you soon!

Please note that during our move, we cannot be reached at our company telephone number. Please use the cell phone numbers of the employees, as they are displayed on the contact page.

The start of a new theater season

Theater season 2016/2017 has really begun after the Uitmarkt and the opening of the Dutch Theater Festival. Last weekend all the performances on Theaterfestival de Parade received a price: De Mus. A nice gesture of the festival because of the subsidy difficulties in our sector. We also received a great compliment of newspaper Het Parool who recommended our performance ‘De Nieuwe Rus’ in it’s article about The Parade. Later this month our tour of The Wall starts in Corrosia Theater, Expo & Film in Almere. Check our agenda for all our performances.
