The Orion Theatre, Stockholm’s largest avant-garde stage was formed in 1983, and is one of Sweden’s most interesting and innovative theatres.
The building was once a huge mechanical workshop on the south side of Stockholm and is now a unique theatre space, one of the most magical in Scandinavia.
The Orion Theatre provides a space for theatrical experiment and work of a high artistic standard, a resource which traditional theatres cannot offer, for various reasons.
The Orion Theatre is a meeting place for artists searching for new ways of working outside the limitations of institutional theatre. It is also a meeting place for institutions who want to try out new working methods through collaboration, who want to gain inspiration for vital renewal and development.
The Orion Theatre builds bridges to other cultures and welcomes exchange and change of experience with companies from all parts of the world. Among these are the Peking Opera in Shanghai, Theatre de Complicité from London, Le Cirque Invisible from Paris, the Suzuki Company of Toga, Japan, Mr Gopal Venu’s Kootiyattam ensemble from Kerala, Southern India and The School of Dramatic Art, Moscow.
Artistic Director Sally Palmquist Procopé.
