Welcome

ZID Theater – City Art & Performance Center is a cultural organization based in Amsterdam. ZID produces the annual ExploreZ festival, multidisciplinary performances and realizes projects together with art professionals, urban talents and city dwellers. ZID works in an urban, national and international way. ZID has its own place in the Kolenkitbuurt, on the border of Amsterdam West and New- West. ZID is a workplace, urban talents “development site”, a stage and connector!

The stories of the residents of the city form the source of inspiration and the starting point of our productions.

Our Director Karolina Spaic was appointed Knight in the Order of Oranje-Nassau on 24 April 2020. The Mayor of Amsterdam, Femke Halsema, said during the ceremony: “Demolishing walls and building bridges: this is how you contribute to a colorful and artistic Kolenkit, a tolerant city and a better world“.
