Handtheater was a unique organization in the Netherlands that was active in the field of performing arts and cultural education in sign language from 1990 to 2012.

Originating from the deaf community, a minority with its own language and culture, Handtheater gave bilingual performances, in Dutch Sign Language and spoken Dutch, in the regular theatre circuit in the Netherlands and abroad.

Handtheater was founded on May 2, 1990 and has been inactive since July 2015.
