Theatergroep LAVA

tgLAVA is a Haarlem (NL) based new writing theatre company which specialises in creating site-specific, musical theatre. Jiske Gunkel, Marije Scheerder and Liesbeth Rood are particularly interested in making work in places which the public don’t often get into, the sorts of places that you might pass by everyday without actually noticing.

Places which have interesting features, histories and former uses, perhaps layered with recollections and associations which are on the brink of slipping from living memory. Or places that are at the end of one use and not quite ready for the next.

Our projects invite people to explore a particular place of interest in a mediated way; weaving together its stories – real and imagined – to make accessible this neglected or forgotten space and encourage people to examine it in a new light.
