About us

A small theatre with great international reach

Teatret Gruppe 38 is a professional, prizewinning theatre which has existed since 1972. The theatre is located in the city of Aarhus, Denmark, and led by the artistic leader, writer and actor Bodil Alling. We create reflective, whimsical and philosophic theatre, presented in an intimate format.

Teatret Gruppe 38 has an extensive tour-programme – in Denmark and abroad. Amongst other countries, we have lately been visiting Australia, Croatia, Norway, Canada, USA, Germany, Estonia, Scotland and Japan.
See a list of our foreign tours during the recent years.

Theatre plays in English at Teatret Gruppe 38

Every season, we present a programme of theatre in English on our stage in Aarhus. As a theatre frequently performing in English on foreign tours, we want to give non-Danish speaking audiences in and around Aarhus the opportunity to experience professional theatre – and an important part of Danish culture – in an understandable language.

Full of Good Stories

We strive to create and present enriching, immersive and challenging artistic experiences.

We seek the complexity of the simple to create unpredictable, thought-provoking experiences that sharpen imagination – but as the audience can recognize at the same time and themselves and their surroundings.

Theatre for everyone

Some of the performances we present are only suitable for adults – more of them appeal equally to adults and children. If you visit us in company with children, please do comply with the minimum age requirements of the specific performance.
