STET’s Greenhouse is a place for performers to grow. Each year we present experimental work by up-and-coming talent, alongside established performers. You get to see a diverse selection of the best new theatre, dance, music and storytelling while walking through the beautiful garden of the Hof van Wouw. Scroll down to see the lineup of this year’s performers.
