About RATS

Research, Arts & Technology for Society


RATS Theatre creates artistic productions, with cutting-edge technology and leading researchers from all fields, to raise discussion about the most important social and political issues. With our digital productions for mobile devices and public spaces, RATS strives both to be artistically innovative and to disseminate knowledge, arts and culture to a wider audience in Scandinavia and internationally. Some of our productions are Women in Science (2013), Antigone in Husby (2014), and EXILE – Free Poets on the Run (2016).

The theatre was founded in 2008 by current artistic director Rebecca Örtman. Since 2016, RATS is a part of Stockholm University.
