Orkater (a mixture of the Dutch words orkest/theater = orchestra/theatre) primarily makes contemporary music theatre, which is always newly written and newly composed. Orkater holds dear the freedom with which performances are conceived, made and presented. The inevitable consequence is that no hard-and-fast policy is followed when putting together repertoire. This means that in some Orkater productions, disciplines other than music theatre have the upper hand. The playing space can vary from studio theatre to municipal theatre, from museum to summer festival.
