About Veem House for Performance

Filled with voices during the year; old and new, young and established, coming from the arts and beyond, coming from Amsterdam and abroad. Always exploring what performance can and should be in movement, time, and discourse; questioning what we take as given, performing new proposals for ways of looking, and taking us on journeys to unknown worlds. Veem stands as a house for performance, dance, and discourse for making and presenting radical, daring, and experimental work.

We do this by producing and presenting performances on the cross-disciplinary field of dance, theatre, visual arts, cinematography, and music from new makers and by inviting work of international influential artists.

We do this in connections with schools and institutions with whom we share fascinations and this field. (i.a. SNDO, Mime, Amsterdam Master of Choreography and DasArts; Stedelijk Museum, SPRING, ICK, Oude Kerk, Nieuwe Grond – Theater Festival, Van Gogh Museum)

We do this in discourse by organising exchanges of thought, booklaunches, debates and salons.

We do this in going outside and working at, and with, other spaces and places.

We do this with you – the audience, artists, and all curious minds out there. The doors are open! Be welcome.

Veem House for Performance is subsidized structurally by Gemeente Amsterdam and Performing Arts Fund.

Veem House for Performance is part of Life Long Burning (LLB), a project supported by the Culture Programme of the European Union.The project is dedicated to the sustainable support of the European contemporary dance and performance field and the enlargement of its audience. It is implemented throughout a five-year period (July 1, 2013 — June 30, 2018) by a wide-spread and highly professional network of dance associations, companies and production houses.

The project LLB has been funded with support from the European Commission. This publication [communication] reflects the views only of the author, and the Commission cannot be held responsible for any use which may be made of the information contained therein.

Renting the space

Main theater space

Our characteristic main theater space at the Van Diemenstraat 410 in Amsterdam is situated on the third floor at the backside of the old warehouse Het Veemgebouw. The size is 10 × 13 × 5 meters. Specifics and detailed technical information can be found at 

Load and unload

For loading/unloading you can park in front of the entrance. The theater hall is located on the 3rd floor. There is no cargo elevator available, only a small public elevator (0,9m wide × 2m high × 1.35m deep). Objects that do not fit in the elevator can be lifted with an electronic winch, or have to be carried via the stairs (at the top of the stairs, a door of 2.40m by 0.90m has to be crossed).


The stage entrance is the same as the public entrance and can be recognized by the plexiglass covering above the entrance, and the two banners on the frontage next to the door (“Veem House for Performance” and “de Veemvloer”). Please ring the bell of “Veem Huis voor Performance — Theaterzaal” (theater hall), or “Veem Huis voor Performance — Kantoor” (office).

In the neighbourhood there is enough parking place available. Payed parking from 9 am to midnight. Parking places can be found on the ferry-pier (100m to the west, on the right side), or in the quarter. For routing to Veem House for Performance, see route on this website.


The theater space is being used for our performances. Next to our program there is the unique opportunity to rent this beautiful location. The theater can be used for conferences, seminars, lectures, dance lessons, workshops, expositions or fotoshoots as well as for your birthday party or other festivities. We have a multi-functional system in the house with the possibility for installing light and decor. The space can easily be adapted to the individual needs of the event.
