Subtopia: Home to a Unique Circus Environment

Subtopia is home to a unique circus environment, with a large number of troupes and performers, international networks and other key players in the circus industry. Subtopia is constantly striving to create an attractive common ground where those involved in circus from around the world can meet to create, produce and evolve.

Our focus is on developing infrastructure, supporting the creative and production processes, and on promoting both local and visiting circus performers. We do so by organising residency programmes and workshops, by giving production advice. We participate in European development programmes and in 2010, we opened Hangaren, the first Swedish venue dedicated to presenting both Swedish and international contemporary circus. Visit our event calendar for more information on performances in Hangaren.
