There is a place where the malformed find grace, where the hideous can be beautiful, where strangeness is not shunned but celebrated. This place is the theater.

BeKa Szinház - Stockholm (Theater BeKa - Stockholm) organizes theatre guest-performances in Sweden, primarily from Hungary.
This is a private initiative without funding from state, municipality or members and was started by Katalin Bellaagh in 2016. Over the past three years, we have had ten theater performances, a film club and a poetry evening held at various Stockholm theaters. You can read more about these performances at this site.

BeKa színház - Stockholm's objective
The primary objective behind this initiative is to offer quality entertainment for the growing group, with Hungarian as their mother tongue, living in Sweden, and eventually for all young people and adults, regardless of nationality and language. Our goal is not just to fulfill the audience's already existing interest in the theater, but also to widen our common horizons through addressing important, sometimes even sensitive and difficult topics of human existence as individuals and as social beings. We do this by inviting eminent theater groups and actors with exquisite performances. Our ultimate endeavor is to be able to enrich Stockholm's cultural life through our activities.

Support and sponsorship
As our initiative is completely dependent on ticket revenues and as such, is vulnerable, we have a constant need of voluntary contributions and support from both individuals and organizations. These would facilitate our ability to plan in the longer term, to be able to make our performances available not only in Hungarian, but also in Swedish and/or in English, and to be able to rent theaters that are big enough to accommodate everybody who wants to see them. If you are interested in supporting us, please feel free to contact us via e-mail or via the form on our website.

 Thank you for showing interest in our theatre initiative!
