Warehouse Theatre to close shop

Having been in business for the past 30 years, the Warehouse Theatre is said to take its final bow this month.

It has been confirmed that as of 8 October, the Warehouse Theatre in Windhoek will be closing its doors and going out of business. Due to financial constraints and outside pressure, the establishment which recently celebrated its 30 years in business will be bowing out despite attempts to revive it including the crowdfunding festival.

Warehouse Theatre Windhoek opened its doors in 1989 and since then has been at the center of Namibia’s art scene, providing a home and platform for local artists, and hosting numerous noteworthy international artists. The core of Warehouse Theatre’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.

An online petition to save the establishment that is deemed to be a national treasure is circulating on social media asking members of the public to take a stand to save the arts and culture hub.
