About Ammodo

We initiate, develop and support projects in the visual arts, performing arts and sciences. Artists and scientists often see things before other people do. They identify social trends, extend boundaries and make revolutionary discoveries. By providing artists and scientists with the space and time to really immerse themselves in their work, and by helping to showcase that work, we seek to stimulate the development of the arts and sciences.


We work together with reputable partners to initiate groundbreaking projects


We want to be able to interpret developments in the arts and sciences. That is why we provide experts and innovators with a platform on which to present their visions.

    Director Jessie L’Herminez brings Eugène Ionesco’s absurdist play The Chairs (1952) to the stage for Toneelschuur Producties. In this ‘tragic farce’, an old man and woman are confronted with their own mortality as they wait for the end. Together they play to fend off the meaninglessness.

It also holds a crucial position in the international theatre field by contributing to international co-productions and by being a member of two European theatre networks.

As part of this new programme, Frascati will realise three international co-productions as well as three productions by international Netherlands-based directors between 2022 and 2024.
