Akvavit Theatre is a new voice in the Chicago theatre scene. Taking as our inspiration the striking landscapes of the five Nordic countriesâ€”harnessing the force of the glacier, in its powerful seeming stillness, the volcano, in its sudden white-hot eruption, and the arctic silence in betweenâ€”we strive to find the universal through the voices of the Nordic world. This is our contribution to the American mosaic. And like our namesake drink, Akvavit brings a â€śstrong spiritâ€ť to the plays, workshops and events that we produce. SkĂĄl, SkĂˇl, Kippis!
