A home for every
thing we love

It used to be a theater.
A daylight one.
We’ve kept the space,
and the light,
much of the grandeur,
and a little of the theatricals,
to create the NewWerktheater.


Enter through the front door and you will find yourself here. Order a coffee, grab a magazine, take a seat and enjoy our menu with daily changes. Every Friday Night we’re open for dining and cocktails, never the same menu, always a great night.

Photo Studio

A high ceiling and massive windows make the Photo Studio the spot for photoshoots. Alternatively, swap the soft box for a table and you’ve got a great space for workshops.

Sunday 18, February we are hosting Food&Film No.4 – a matinee brunch + film viewing with the director here to talk about his or her work.

For the fourth edition, we are excited to have director & photographer Elza Jo van Reenen here to present her documentary Jolene. An intimate, raw and uncensored documentary about a woman whose life is harsh.

Everything about Jolene’s life is intense. Jolene lives off chaos and adrenaline. At night she works as a barmaid in a strip club. She got her firstborn at sixteen, and four years later the second one followed.
Jolene loves AJAX. She’s one of the few women amongst the hardcore AJAX fans. Jolene is never scared, she never takes a step back.
Jolene was born with a recently recovered drug-addict mother, and an addicted father she never knew. But a father-figure is introduced to her life when her mother marries Keith Bakker. Keith, who will later be a successful TV-psychologist, is heavily addicted. One day he disappears from Jolene’s life. Longing for that loving father-figure, Jolene involves herself in one destructive relationship after the other.
Jolene’s hunger for adrenaline can’t be tamed. But, she doesn’t want to continue on the same path. Jolene enrols at the university to study psychology. To her big surprise, she’s proving to be a successful student and decides to go full speed ahead determined to get her degree.
Elza Jo spent three years together with Jolene. The documentary is the renowned photographer’s first film. 
The documentary is a co-production from HALAL docs and BNNVARA made possible with the support from CoBO and the Amsterdam Fonds voor de Kunst.
12:00 We start with brunch
14:00 Film Elza Jo
All together: €17,50

…,staat are unveiling their latest collaboration, a limited range of art objects with fashion designer Jackie Villevoye. ‘Aesthetic Memories’ see geometrical patterns juxtaposed with the craft of hand embroidery. Each of the 30 pieces are hand embroidered in Villevoye’s atelier of master embroiderers in the Indian province of Uttar Pradesh.

Villevoye is renowned for her hand embroidered designs, as the lady behind the embroidery for Comme des Garçons’ women’s ready-to-wear collections from 2013 to S/S’17. Following her collaboration with CDG’s Rei Kawakubo, Villevoye has gotten together with …,staat to turn her creations from on the body to on the wall.

We’re holding the exhibition here at the NewWerktheater from 1st December – 1st March 2018

Come join us and see this example of a rare craft being kept alive.
