Arcola is a modern theatre in the trendy district of Dalston. It recently moved from Arcola Street to Ashwin Street, and now is neighboring with the famous cafe-club "Oto". Despite its young age (it was founded in 2000), it became famous with its innovative approach to drama. The theatre is located in a former textile factory, there is no actual stage or audience seats, you can sit pretty much anywhere. Arcola was twice awarded the title of the best young theatre for its democracy and high quality of work (according to London magazine Time Out).
