This centre was developed for the historical play ”Gurispelet”, situated on medival Edøy. It also gives room for different cultural events such as concerts, plays and movieshows.

The centre is cut into a sandy hill, on the edge of an agricultural landscape which includes an eighthundred year old church. The new amphitheatre shields the stage from the quayside.
