Långsjö teater was funded in 2012 when the first production, Inanna, a community theatre project was carried out at Vårdinge village, at the border of the Stockholm and Sörmland region, near the lake, Långsjö. Långsjö theatre moved later into the old roundhouse in Gnesta and became a steady little theatre in Sörmland. Our identity is embedded in physical theatre embodying various disciplines as storytelling, clown and mask, live music, kathakali and other body work. The performances often have an improvisational and interactive part where each audience of each performance has the chance to receive a unique and participatory experience. One of the main characteristics of our work is that we do broad research before each production and work cross-over with sustainability issues, interdisciplinary research and performing art. We create production both for children and for adult audiences and we also work with social-ecological sustainability projects. Långsjö teater aims to be a creative platform that is open to various kinds of collaborations and develop actor-led processes and productions.
URK kommer av ordet urkopplad. “Urban mining” handlar om hur vi kan återvinna de resurser av metaller som finns nedgrävda i marken i form av rör, ledningar och kablar under våra städer. Bara i Sverige finns aluminium, koppar och bly nergrävt till ett värde av miljarder kronor. Projektet tar avstamp i Björn Wallsten forskning The Urk World och är en del av Långsjö teaters allkonstverk Urkarnas värld, som kommer visas i R1 Reaktorhallen, KTH i Stockholm 2020 mars.
Långsjö teater has a a small but cosy performance space situated in the roundhouse in Gnesta.
Artists, dancers and performers are welcome to come and use the space for research, rehearsals or shows.
