In October 2012 the newest theatre in the north of Norway opened in Kirkenes.
Sør-Varanger Kultursal is the "home stage" of Samovarteateret. The theatre is owned by Sør-Varanger Kommune and is run by Samovarteateret.
The theatre is localized with Kirkenes School and Kirkenes Culture School. It has a stage with 188 seats and a theatre cafe. We also have our offices, workshops, storage and wardrobes here.
The stage has guest performances from Hålogaland Teater, Riksteatret, Beivvas Sami Theatre, Stellaris DansTheatre and all our foreign partners.
