Bringing Europe’s Theatre to You

As a dedicated team of theater professionals, we embarked on a mission to create a platform that empowers theaters to connect and showcase their work on a global stage. Thus, we introduce Third Stage – a platform that premiered in Slovenia in 2020 as a pilot for streaming live theater shows. In just five months, we featured an impressive 100 performances, reaching a diverse audience of over 35,000 people in 82 different countries. This was a tremendous success for Slovenia, a country with a population of just over 2 million. Imagine the possibilities on a European stage.

In 2022, Third Stage received support from Creative Europe to develop a pan-European platform that caters to both business professionals and theater enthusiasts, showcasing the best performances online. Our goal is to create a professional platform exclusively for theaters and theater professionals, providing an avenue to keep abreast of current productions from European Union institutional theaters. Additionally, theaters will have the opportunity to showcase their own work, connecting with colleagues around the world and availing themselves of networking, knowledge sharing, and business development opportunities.

The platform will feature an extensive video library, community section, and a directory of professionals, providing members with the means to discuss industry trends, share resources, and explore new networking and job opportunities. Third Stage offers valuable resources and tools that are essential for staying competitive and creating high-quality productions. We will launch in April 2024 with an online festival that will showcase the latest European theater productions, featuring a diverse range of productions from different countries, including plays, musicals, and experimental performances.



Online celebration of European Theatre’s Diversity and Beauty

Coming in April 2024

We are excited to announce an online festival that celebrates the diversity of drama creations across the European theatre landscape.

Through our platform we will showcase performances from various EU countries, giving the general public a unique opportunity to experience the magic of European theatre.

We welcome all EU theatres to share one or more performances for inclusion in the festival. Our goal is to showcase the incredible talent and creativity that exists within the European theatre community. By bringing together a diverse range of performances, we hope to demonstrate the richness and depth of European theatre and give the public a unique opportunity to explore the world of European theatre.

Theatres send us an email if you wish to participate. Let’s create an open stage in 2024!
