  • Description


    We run a non-profit summer theatre, 300 meters from the harbour in a small fishing Village in the South of Sweden. It is a well-known and vibrant cultural centre that attracts audiences from all over Sweden with different performances and cultural activities. The theatre is located in the main tourist region of Sweden - Skåne/Österlen, a beutiful region with wide and miles long, white sand beaches and plenty of nice venues to visit. The nature is magnificent and serves well for biking and hiking.

    The theatre has three different stages and has been awarded many prizes. It is managed by the creative producer Karin (speaks good English and Spanish) who recently restored the whole building and will now start to grow ecological food to serve in the restaurant of the theatre.

    The Theatre is located in a small fisher village, in the beautiful region of Skåne/Österlen. We have bikes for you as a volunteer to use and it takes 20-30 minutes (great biking tracks next to the sea) to bike to the nearest City - Simrishamn, one of the main tourist cities of Skåne.

    We prioritize when people can come for longer period and we also prefere people travelling in teams. But there are always room for exceptions.
