3:e Våningen – an artist-run Dance Venue, Studio and Art Space in Göteborg, Sweden
3:e Våningen (3rd Floor) is 600 square metres dedicated to contemporary dance and art, focusing on choreographic and spatial expressions. The venue holds a black box and a white space, side by side. Two relative counterpoints, offering new possibilities for interaction. In this trans-disciplinary environment new works are created throughout the year. Broad national and international networks enable carefully selected guest performances.
In October 2010 Gun Lund and Lars Persson started this new chapter in Swedish dance history. It was a generous expansion of their previous space 24 Kvadrat, which the duo since 2002 had made famous for being the smallest dance venue in Sweden.
3:e Våningen is located at the harbour entrance of Göteborg, in an old 19th century factory, alongside many other artists, studios and creative businesses.
3:e Våningen is home venue for choreographers Gun Lund and Olof Persson and their companies E=mc2 Dance and Olof Persson Projects. It is also a space for choreographers and dance companies from Göteborg and the West Coast area, offering them possibilities for long rehearsal and performance periods.
Each year a number of international dance productions are invited and presented at 3:e Våningen. Collaborations and exchanges are of particular interest to the venue and the hosting dance companies.
Since January 2013 Olof Persson has joined Gun Lund and Lars Persson as Artistic Director.
– Our trademark is a careful and personal choice of performances, exhibitions and concerts, set in an intimate atmosphere and with a close relation to the audience. A lot of work and a great love for the Arts make this project possible.
Welcome to 3:e Våningen!
