A red building: Skånes Dansteater venue

Website documenting Europe Beyond Access in Sweden


Skånes Dansteater is proud to lead the consortium and be a part of the successful work with Europe Beyond Access. The next coming years we will continue to support, promote, and expose innovative contemporary dance by and with disabled artists. We will produce a large-scale production with our ensemble lead by a disabled choreographer, available for touring to larger venues in Europe. We are hoping to inspire and influence other mainstream cultural organizations to employ disabled artists and choreographers and push the development further.

Skånes Dansteater (Malmö, Sweden) is Sweden’s only independent dance company. A contemporary dance repertory ensemble presenting works by Swedish and international choreographers in their own venue in Malmö, nationally and internationally. In addition to ensemble work, the programme offers community projects, the DansFunk festival, guest performances, iDance workshops, international laboratories, and residencies. Since 2014 Skånes Dansteater has integrated disabled dancers into its repertory company on a regular basis, and since 2022 one of the full-time employed dancers in the company is a wheelchair user. The organization has become a leading voice in arts and disability in Sweden as well as the rest of Scandinavia.
