The Swedish Biennial for Performing Arts

Every second year we proudly present Scenkonstbiennalen, The Swedish Biennial for Performing Arts, with one of the country’s professional theatres as a host. Scenkonstbiennalen is Sweden’s largest festival for performing arts and is an important gathering place for those working within the profession. For international visitors it also serves as a window into the world of Swedish performing arts.

Scenkonstbiennalen offers a selection of the greatest performances within Swedish theatre, music theatre and dance. To be selected for the Biennial is considered a great honour and an affirmation of artistic quality and/or ground-breaking form.

The festival also includes student productions and international guest performances as well as a variety of seminars, workshops, meetings, parties and much more.
