Lusus Theatre arises from collaborative artistic processes, with cultural diversity as its core. 

With both Danish and international artists who are affiliated to the community in Aarhus, the group aims to create and develop a space where stage art shortens gaps, builds bridges and expands communication, bringing a sense of belonging for its members and its audience.

Lusus Theatre aims to create original, relevant and significant work that emerges from the intercultural context of contemporary life.

Lusus means playfulness in Latin and it is what we believe in and practice in our creative process and onstage.
