We’re the oldest independent theatre of Estonia. We have seen the time before Euro and time after Estonian Kroon. We have evolved from a traveling theatre of the 1990s into a versatile repertoire theatre, with around 220 shows per season.
We´re not the biggest theatre company of Estonia (with 14 permanent workers), but we’re fierce and tireless. Our repertoire consists of a diverse palette of classical and contemporary materials from around the world. We play for all age groups and even find time and energy for teenagers (an age group sadly often forgotten in Estonian theatre). We have participated in multiple international theatre projects and we tackle every new challenge with the idea “Size doesn’t matter!” – as Estonians we know well, how to do something big our of very little.
VAT Teater is also connected with Viljandi Culture Academy of University of Tartu for the PlayOn! project.
