Since the beginning of the 20th century, Södran, as it is known colloquially, has been the hub of variety shows and operettas in the capital. However, just like any popular cultural centre, it has had to adapt to appeal to a modern audience. “In the late 1990s, Södran transformed into an international scene for dance, music, theatre and lectures. Södran has a dynamic profile, attracting colourful local artists as well as international stars. Today, we also have a recognised club scene as well as a focus on meetings and events,” Ingmari Pagenkemper, CEO and creative leader at Södra Teatern, explains. In addition to a great selection of cultural events, Södran also offers culinary pleasures.
