Artists of different generations from around the world, both familiar names and newcomers, gather for ten concentrated, vibrating days of live art experiences, including several Norwegian premieres. By crossing artistic practices, these artists open up a stimulating dialogue between performing arts, music and visual arts, challenging what the art experience can be. The festival is unfolding throughout the city in various venues.
For this edition, the program will circulate around interconnectedness: looking for the many stories and layers that define us as human beings, how do we relate to our lineage, our legacy, our roots and history; and to the others.
The festival will be opened by a two-day workshop ("Sharing practices among producers") for experienced producers working with artists and companies in the independent performing arts field
Oslo Internasjonale Teaterfestival will be held from Thursday 5th March to Saturday 14th March 2020. You can read more about the festival online, download the festival catalogue or follow the festival on Facebook.
