The festival will be hosted at Stora Teatern in Gothenburg, which sits like a big cream bun in the centre of the city. We chose Stora Teatern because it lives and breathes culture, history and challenging performance art. The theatre opened in 1859 and was previously Gothenburg’s opera stage. Today, concerts, theatre and lectures are held there and it is funded by the City of Gothenburg’s Cultural Commitee. As well as the fantastic auditorium, we will also meet in the crystal foyer where Gothenburg’s most stunning panoramic windows overlook the Bältesspännar Park. You’ll be able to take a break here, meet new people and talk about impressions from the festival. The social event on the Friday will also be held here.
