KTH R1 Experimental Performance Space
and Presence Laboratory
The KTH R1 Experimental Performance Space is a project at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, with support from Akademiska Hus and EIT ICT Labs.
The project will establish a permanent experimental performance space in the discontinued reactor hall at KTH. The underground environment located 25 meters beneath the university campus represents Swedens entry into the Nuclear Age and provides a unique setting for performance activities (500 sqm). Such events may explore and make use of the reactor hall itself or use media technology to make activities, installations and performances virtually accessible through several media channels.
The KTH R1 Experimental Performance Space is also aimed to be a creative meeting space for KTH and its partners among other higher education institutions.
It is also a place for new multidisciplinary research within presence.
