Regionteater Väst

Regionteater Väst is a producer of the performing arts for young audiences. Our aim is to provide them with the kind of performing art which puts their own voices first. No matter where they live, where they are from or who they are, all children should have the opportunity to experience professional art.
Regionteater Väst is a touring company in the region of Västra Götaland, in the west of Sweden, which contains 49 municipalities. Due to this extensive touring area, we are one of the largest touring institutions and producers of the performing arts for a young audience in the whole of Sweden. We have two production centres; one in Borås where dance is produced and one in Uddevalla for theatre.
