Theaterstraat Benefieten

Monday December 23rd & Thursday December 26th 2013: Theaterstraat Benefieten, Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

Aangezien de loods van Theaterstraat is verbrand kunnen ze alle steun gebruiken. Dus komt, eet (lekker) en steun! Since the location of Theaterstraat was burned in a fire, they can use all the support they can get. So come, have a nice meal and support Theaterstraat!

During the blaze at “De Heining”, in the west-harbor area of Amsterdam, on December 2nd, the warehouse of TheaterStraat burned down to the ground. TheaterStraat is well-known for their support during demonstrations and events with their iconic yellow-red stage truck, but also provides transportation with their coaches, logistical support and loads more.

The trucks and coaches are saved, but all the rest is gone (sound equipment, stage lighting, mixing desks, the tents, containers, tools, the ware-house, the office and so on and so forth…)

Theaterstraat_AmsterdamBecause of the scale of the blaze (more than 12 companies are affected) it will take a long time before it will become clear if and what will be covered by the insurance company. In any case it will never cover all the losses!

For starters they need help with cleaning and sorting and we need to build them a new ware-house. For now (a lot of) money is needed.

Think back of all the numerous demonstrations, festivals and other occasions where TheaterStraat was involved and donate some money. Ask also your friends and family. Start organizing benefits, because Theaterstraat is paramount for the alternative scene in the Netherlands.

We always relied on TheaterStraat and this time around TheaterStraat needs us!

Donations can already be made to the TheaterStraat bank-account.
