Eppax is a cooperation of Rob van den Bos (manager, founder) and Maria Teresa Buttarelli.
We initiate and (co)produce performing arts and organize international touring.
We specialize in dance, music, theater and special events. Since 1985 we have brought productions to festivals and theaters in Europe, Asia and South America.
In producing performances and international touring, we are taking steps to reduce our carbon footprint and develop new strategies to further combat climate change.
