Bastionen is jointly run by Teater Foratt and InSite, both of which have been working successfully and independently since the middle of the decade. In 2009 we got together to manage and programme Bastionen, the largest independent theatre house in the south of Sweden.
At Bastionen we create a space for theatrical arts, debate and performance at the geographical crossroad where Sweden meets the rest of the world. We adapt and experiment with our theater space, and offer innovative, interdisciplinary art at a regional and international level. Our work reaches out into the city and the world through site-specific performances and international tours.
Bastionens’ program includes productions by Foratt and InSite as well as one-off events, co-productions and guest performances. Bastionen acts as a platform for new groups and constellations of artists to develop their work.
Bastionen has a black box stage, with seating for 200 persons. Along with the big stage Bastionen holds a foyer stage and bar. Especially suitable for intimate preformances and shows. There is a rehearsal room, workshop area as well as a large office and administration area located in the three floor building.
If your team would like to take your project to Bastionen, don’t hesitate to contact us. We support brave initiatives and original thought withing the cultural sphere!
