Haglund Skola, 4
740 10 Almunge
SU-EN Butoh Company´s residency since 1997.
Here is the studio, the office, the costume and scenography atelier, as well as guest houses for collaborators and workshop participants.
The buildings used to be the village school until 1954, the main building was finished about 1900, and the small school was in use by 1850. The wooden buildings are in the traditional Swedish style, beautifully surrounded by the forest and fields.
The activities are administered by non-profit organization Mon no Kai with support from Uppsala Cultural Council, and Swedish Arts Council.
The facilities do not have permanent ramps for wheel chairs etc, but if you give us notice we can construct something temporary to help access the buildings. Most welcome to visit!
