GROUNDBREAKING THEATRE IN SIGN LANGUAGE
Out of concern for our audiences, our staff, and all enthusiasts who work with our performances around the country, and due to the corona virus, covid-19, we have made the decision to cancel our spring repertoire, inclusive Tyst Teater 50 years which is postponed to November 21, 2020.

Riksteatern’s Tyst Teater is a pioneer in the production of groundbreaking dramatic art in Swedish Sign Language. Ever since the start in 1970, we have offered a unique selection of dramatic arts, seminars and meetings. Tyst Teater has been part of Riksteatern since 1977. Tyst Teater is constantly striving to challenge ingrained notions within theatre and other dramatic arts. We want to push the boundaries and at the same time provide a fixed point for the sign-language audience. Watching a Tyst Teater performance should be like coming home for our audience.
Tyst Teater’s vision is to create the very best dramatic art in Swedish Sign Language, with and by artists and cultural performers who are deaf and members of the sign-language community. We also work constantly to improve our collaboration with international interest organisations and theatres. Today’s selection of dramatic arts in sign language is devastatingly thin. For that reason, Tyst Teater is playing an invaluable role. We will keep using the dramatic arts to reflect, influence, impact and change. Today we shape the dramatic arts of tomorrow.
