Profilteatern is an independent theatre company based in Umeå. Our vision is to work with drama through creative processes involving our own curiousity and passion for drama as an art form. The members collectively set the programme, budget and other group activities. Profilteatern was founded in 1984.

We aim to create performances that are as complex as possible, with strong visual effects and always set to original music. We have a feminist approach when it comes to selecting plays, staging and working environment.

Profilteatern performs to children, youngsters and adults. Over the past ten years, we have worked almost solely with new Swedish and foreign drama, and we will continue to do so. Our theatre is situated in Umestan, Umeå, but we also tour around Sweden and abroad.
