BAU provides a space for artistic development, research and presentation of independent performing arts.
BAU is a breeding ground for independent makers in the performing arts. It covers the full range of dance and performance, including all kinds of crossovers with, for example, music, visual arts and architecture. BAU initiates a diverse programme of activities including residencies, labs and work-in-progress presentations. In this way we make the artistic development of artists accessible and visible to an audience.

The purpose of the foundation is to produce and present artistic activities and events. The foundation aims to promote the performing arts in Amsterdam and beyond, as well as everything that is directly or indirectly related or beneficial to this, in the broadest sense.
BAU is one of the founding partners of the development network GREENHOUSE and consults with independent creatives closely connected to BAU. This keeps us informed of current events in the performing arts and connects us to a large network.
