The ensemble was founded in 2000 under the name of Teater Terrier and has since then been a serious part of the Swedish theatre scene. In 2007, we changed course and became an international forum for production and creative ideas.

Today, Institutet has one foot in Malmö and one in Berlin and access to a network of Swedish and German performers. Together with academic and artistic communities, Instituet participates in an international exchange programme for the development of strategies with the field of performing arts. Intitutet explores drama as the embodiment of each unique performance as an in situ event set in a specific context and at the very moment it is enacted.
