The Archa Theatre is a centre for contemporary stage art without regard to barriers of genre. Since its foundation in 1994, Archa has established a solid reputation on the domestic and international progressive scenes with its unique dramaturgy and innovative projects. It operates as a production house that provides space to artists for their creative work. Over the past 25 years Archa has welcomed “on board” renowned figures of world art like Robert Wilson, Min Tanaka, Wim Vandekeybus, Anna Teresa de Keersmaeker, Royal Shakespeare Company, Cheek By Jowl, Ultima Vez, DV8 - Physical Theatre, Dogtroep, Forced Entertainment, Lola Arias, Rimini Protokoll, Pieter De Buysser, Milo Rau, Wen Hui and many others. Projects by young artists are conceived and developed under the auspices of the Archa.lab and its residencies. The theatre's International Summer School serves as a platform for experimentation and research in the field of documentary theatre. One of Archa's flagship events each season is the Akcent International Festival of Documentary Theatre.
