Dansens Hus is Swedens largest venue for contemporary dance and closely related performance art from Sweden and around the world.
Dansens Hus was inaugurated in 1991 and is situated in Folkets Hus by Norra Bantorget in central Stockholm. Its main stage has a capacity of 766 people, the small stage has an audience capacity of 140 seats. In addition two dance studios provide space for rehearsals and training.
Dansens Hus’ aim is to present high quality contemporary Swedish and international companies and choreographers that have affected artistic expression over the last decades – along with the ones who will do so in the future. The program is topped off with informed seminars, inquisitive lectures, hands on-workshops, playful children’s activities and engaging exhibitions.
Since January 2014 Annelie Gardell is the Artistic Director at Dansens Hus.
