Teater Galeasen was founded in 1983 and has been working for more than 30 years as one of the country’s leading independent theatres. We have a permanent scene at Skeppsholmen, a unique scene in a unique Stockholm environment. So far, the group has produced over 80 theatre productions, several in close collaboration with Swedish dramatists. The great breakthrough came in 1987 with the “Sacrament”, free after Lars Norén. A performance that definitely established the Theater Galeasen in theaters.
Since its inception, the theater has consolidated its position as a challenging, provocative and investigative performing arts collective. We want to introduce productions that combine bold, innovative scenic expressions with intelligent content. Drama with built-in resistance, which requires commitment and the courage to be challenged. We have always strived to make anxious, multi-dimensional and transnational art. This is also our continued goal.
