Maas Theater & Dance

Maas Theater & Dance is physical, imaginative and distinctive in every sense. We perform for everyone: children from the age of 3, school classes, families, teens and young adults. You can see us in our home city of Rotterdam and around the world.

Maas represents something new for the Dutch performing arts scene combining two separate disciplines, dance and theater, in a single company. Choreographers and theater directors join forces and at other times have the space to further develop in their own discipline. The artists will explore new terrain, delving into mime, music-theater, interactive media and circus.

Maas performs for children, teens and young adults. Children will be transported into fantasy worlds and exciting adventures. Teens and young adults will not only watch performances, but will also have the opportunity to perform themselves, via workshops and group sessions. Young adults who exhibit talent and serious professional dance or theater ambitions will get a platform, coaching and the chance to develop at Maas. Moniek Merkx is artistic director.
