Göteborgs Dans & Teater Festival is a biannual festival for international performing art in Gothenburg, Sweden. The festival was established in 1994 and has ever since invited international artists to share stories with a diverse audience; stories from all over the world; stories that underline our present; stories that reflect life.<br /> A wide range of initiatives – including residency programmes, co-productions, international network meetings and artistic labs – allow the festival to reinforce its position as an important platform in the local cultural scene, with the objectives to support and circulate contemporary performing art in an international context.

Since 2007 the festival is one of eight festival partners in the network NXTSTP, supported by the EU Culture Programme to co-produce and tour new European work. The festival is a department within Stora Teatern, the main presenting venue in Gothenburg for Swedish and international performing art.>
