About Het ZeeheldentheaterLocated in the Mesdagkwartier and built in 1898 as a double mansion with a passage on the ground floor for horses with carriages to the terrain behind. Between 1960 and 1990, the Snoeck contracting company was located in the building and there were various offices, workshops and a dozen parking spaces. In 1990 the property was bought by dancer Yvette Olof and musician Jan Erik Noske with the aim of creating rehearsal spaces for their music and dance group Pandora. Various halls and studios were built in the context of 'Building Youth for Young People', among others with the help of the Municipality of The Hague. The terrain behind it was excavated by more than a meter to maintain the height in combination with the right insulation. Gradually, the main hall was converted into a theater (with a stand from Fonds 1818) that was opened in 2002 by the then Mayor Deetman as the Zeeheldentheater.
The Zeeheldentheater is a sustainable theater, not only because of technical facilities such as LED lighting, double glazing, an eco green roof, heat recovery installations, sensors, automatic cranes, but also by stimulating a workplace with a very diverse composition of employees and volunteers from all layers of the population. In addition, larger series of performances take place and there is a listening ear for new initiatives from, among others, the district, the city and the whole of Haaglanden (sustainable programming for a broad layer of the population).
