Highlights of Amare (4): House of culture

More Highlights:

Amare is a house of culture for everyone. This open character has also been applied to the public space, which is freely accessible and almost always open, also outside regular programme hours. The stairs in the entrance hall are also suitable for unannounced pop-up performances! 

Amare is more than just a performance venue: it is also a place for people of The Hague to meet. Large sections of Amare are accessible at all times and to everyone, also without visiting a concert or show. The Stadskantine is a prime example, located on the third floor.  Throughout the day you are welcome to join musicians, dancers, Amare staff and conservatoire students for coffee, lunch, or the menu of the day.

Fun fact: The rehearsal room of Nederlands Dans Theater is called ‘Black Box’ and is located on the ground floor, adjacent to Kunstenplein. The space is exactly the same size as the stage in the Danstheater. This way, the dancers can rehearse their choreography right down to the last millimetre. There’s a window nearby the cloakroom area where you can catch a glimpse of the rehearsals going on inside.
