Warehouse Theatre makes history

Despite its economic disparities, there seems to be light at the end of the Warehouse Theatre dark tunnel.

Warehouse recently posted a picture on their social media platforms with a colorful and hopeful caption sharing the good news of the first tour bus ever to make a stop at the theater. The caption read:
“Today the Warehouse Theatre made history.
First tourist bus to visit the Warehouse Theater for a show Showcase Namibia.”

Showcase Namibia is an opportunity for tourists and locals alike to interact with and to be entertained by Namibian cultural performances including song and dance designed to showcase Namibia’s rich and diverse cultural heritage. Showcase Namibia takes place every Tuesday and Wednesday at 15H30 for N$ 170.
The show is held at Warehouse Theatre, where the love of culture and music meets the rhythm of Windhoek city. Situated next to the Craft Centre, the Warehouse Theatre opened its doors in 1989 and is known for hosting world-class local and international shows.  Showcase Namibia consists of different performers and performance styles, therefore guaranteeing a unique display of local culture. The audience is encouraged to indulge in the sounds of Namibia, and to participate in the fun and interactive 45 minute show.

The Warehouse Theatre earlier this year shared with the public the possibilities of them closing doors due to financial constraints. In a Facebook post, they said they tried all to keep the business running but it has become increasingly difficult to do so.

” Warehouse Theatre is currently doing the best it can to stay afloat whilst continuing to give the Namibian public and international visitors access to the art and events that have defined the venue we love. However, this has become increasingly difficult to do,” they said.

The Warehouse Theatre in partnership with its patrons and the general public held a crowd-sourcing event with the aim of collecting money to be able to sustain itself.
The core of Warehouse Theater’s purpose has always been to make performance art in Namibia easily accessible to the public, whilst giving artists a chance to grow their audiences and make a living from doing the work they love.
