Due to financial constraints and outside pressure, the establishment which recently celebrated its 30 years in business has bowed 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 centre 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.
