"The Academy is a hotbed of new ideas and a haven for experimentation." Pavol Liška, Nature Theater of Oklahoma

Acting practices emerge from daily embodied encounters with space. Actor training emphasizes the resonance of the vocal, moving body as acoustic, compositional material. Musicality, collaborative risk and social inquiry inform how actors critically develop own methods for original work and enter the proposals of guest artists.

Norwegian Theatre Academy (NTA) offers a research and study environment in performance, scenography and theatre in the expanded field.

Bachelor students in Acting and Scenography work closely together in workshops and productions.
