Skånes Dansteater believes everyone should have access to dance in accordence with the social model of disability. We are committed to developing accessibility across all areas in the theatre as a place for dance performances, artistic and community exploration, digital content and as an employer.

The theatre's facilities, entrances, foyer, restrooms, auditorium, offices and studios are located on ground level.

The entrance for audience as well as the entrance for staff don't have stairs. The doors are opened with electric assistance.

Accessible parking spaces are located in front of the theatre entrance on Östra Varvsgatan 13a.

Relaxed Performance

A Relaxed Performance suits anyone who prefers or needs a more flexible and relaxed performance experience.

It specifically welcomes disabled persons, but also welcomes anyone who is new or unused to being at the theatre or uncomfortable in a regular performance setting. If you are a parent to toddlers or you need to be able to move around and exit the performance for other reasons, Relaxed Performance is a perfect match.

At a Relaxed Performance there is a generous and relaxed attitude towards audience noise and movement in the auditorium. You are welcome to move around, dance, be vocal or just watch the performance. Our open-door policy makes it easy for you to exit and enter the auditorium as you please during the performance. The performance's audio levels are lower and the general lighting in the room is lighter to create a supportive atmosphere. Everyone is welcome and there is no right or wrong way to be an audience.

For current Relaxed Performances, visit our Calendar.
