Encore Complex was established in 2009, starting small and growing into a well-known venue for a function or event of the client's needs. But there is something special about Encore Complex, that is mentioned with proud, which is a small piece of history.

This piece of history is the core of our theatre, it is our pride and joy and it is the very seats that you sit on during a show, graduation or event. These seats are the original chairs that come all the way from the Old Capital Bioscope on the Church Plain. With that we maintain a feeling of nostalgic and classic items with modern lighting and sound to ensure one of a kind experience.

A background in theatre history and criticism is useful in many careers ranging from production management to teaching. The history of theatre charts back to over 2500 years ago in its development. While performative elements are present in everything we do and see in our daily society, it is necessary to notice a distinction between theatre as an art form and entertainment and theatrical or performative elements in other activities. The history of theatre is mainly concerned about the origin and the initial development of the theatre as an autonomous activity. 

Since classical Athens in the 6th century BC. vibrant traditions of theatre have flourished in cultures across the world.
