Tryater in 5 words: multilingual | contemporary | accessible | talent development | all ages
Tryater is the multilingual theatre company in Fryslân and is part of the Basic National Cultural Infrastructure. We put on over 270 large and small-scale multilingual productions (at least in Frisian and Dutch) each year for some 25,000 children, youth and adults. Based in Leeuwarden but performing all over Friesland and beyond, you see us in theatres, villages, in schools and on location. We bring out new stories, that are close to the heart of our audience, drawing on all the experience we have gained since our founding in 1965 and on the inspiration and energy given by the young talent we work with.
