About “ADO Theatre-Collective”:
“ADO Theatre-Collective” is the very first independent theatre in Azerbaijan. Created in 2013 by Elmin Badalov, “ADO Theatre-Collective” is a unique stage for contemporary creation in Azerbaijan and a space for new emerging artistic and cultural practices.
Proposing new forms and exploring new formats in performing arts, “ADO Theatre – Collective” is an exclusive place for artistic experiments and innovation.
Initially named “ODA Theatre”, the structure proposed a repertoire of contemporary plays in Azerbaijani. In 2015, “ODA Theatre” became “ADO Theatre-Collective”, focused on creation of alternative performances, mostly without text and words, aiming to break the rules of standard plays and classical practices in living arts.
“ADO” organizes tours of its performances in Azerbaijan and abroad:

June 2016 – Tour in Georgia, Tbilisi (Movement Theatre…)
In the framework of its new tour in Tbilisi, “ADO Theatre-Collective” will play on 25th of June in DIVE, Fabrika.
