It feels incredibly important, despite the Corona virus and closed national borders, to continue to develop our international relations. As of right now: only in digital and ephemeral form. However, since I consider it to be an especially important mission to strengthen and deepen our relationship with Europe and the rest of the world, this is therefore a part of the continued work we have as Sweden's national theatre, says Mattias Andersson, Artistic Director for the Royal Dramatic Theatre.
