    A huge complex in Botkyrka Municipality, a suburb of Stockholm, Subtopia is the heart of circus in Sweden – a grand, purpose-built facility where artists can train, rehearse, create, live (in a caravan circus village) and do their paperwork (there are subsidised offices for rent). Open training is available in the big hall, Subtopia's main space (with height varying from 6-11 metres), organised by Cirkus Cirkör. It's regular but seasonal breaks apply so check with Cirkör if you're visiting. Aside from the hall, there are a large number of training spaces, small and large, that can be rented for rehearsal – for which contact the Subtopia administration.
