BaggårdTeatret: Literally ”The Backyard Theatre”, our name has connotations of tenement building courtyards, slums, or rickety sheds and garages.
BaggårdTeatret conceives and presents contemporary works for the stage drawing on stories from our own little world, but aimed at the world in general. Our motto is BE MOVED. We want to move our audiences while making sure our productions have the potential to transform contemporary society.
BaggårdTeatret has been going for more than half a century and its tours have taken in Denmark and many other corners of the globe.
