• Black Box teater
  • Oslo Internasjonale Teaterfestival
  • 8–12 March 2023

Oslo Internasjonale Teaterfestival has been the pulsing heart of Black Box teater’s spring season since 2013. Daring and surprising, it has become an annual rendez-vous for performing arts in Oslo in March. Artists of different generations from around the world, both familiar names and newcomers, gather for eleven 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.

Changes to the program may occur.
