Atalante is an artist-run stage and a venue, where the innovative and experimental is encouraged. Our focus is set on contemporary stage art with choreography and music as our foundation, but we also give priority to film, art and festivals where culture debates and discussions are encouraged. Atalante is located at Övre Husargatan 1, next to Skanstorget in Gothenburg.
The stage was founded in 1987 by the dance collective Rubicon and today Atalante is a hub on the Swedish dance and art scene. Atalante is co-financed by The Swedish Arts Council, The Region Västra Götaland and The City of Gothenburg Department of Culture.
Atalante has 88 seats in a permanent, gradually rising seating arrangement. The walls are painted black and the floor is springy wooden parquet. The stage has a black and white dance carpet and a black backdrop.
The measurements of the stage are width 12,5 meters, depth 10 meters, hight 5,10 meters (to the flybar for headlights).
The stage has an entrance for loading, but no private parking for visiting groups.
