The exhibition portrays the changes that occurred when traditional theatre art in Gothenburg was expanded into a contemporary performing arts scene characterised by mixed genres and forms of expression. Young people formed independent groups with new goals and methods that both shook up and inspired the institutional theatres. A new and progressive type of performing arts developed for a new era and a new audience. Pre-schools, suburbs and youth recreation centres were transformed into self-evident performance venues.

This exhibition displays objects and materials that were involved in these processes, both at Gothenburg’s institutional theatres and at the independent groups. It presents well-known names like Nationalteatern and Galenskaparna together with less prominent but highly influential groups such as Teater Fem and Rubicon.

Opening Sat 25 April 2020. On display until 25 April 2022.
