NTA is organized with a joint leadership - artistic and administrative.

The artistic leadership is shared between Artistic director Acting, professor Karmenlara Ely and Artistic director Scenography, professor Serge von Arx.  

The Head of Section is Anne Berit Løland.

This model of organization mirrors the transdisciplinary focus in our institution as well as the collaborative activity within contemporary performing and live arts in general. A joint leadership, constituted by our two heads of departments (scenography and acting) gives the opportunity to implement the overall artistic visions more deeply into each department, as well as strengthening the development of collaborative projects between the students. Having the two heads of departments share the artistic leadership of the academy brings theory closer to practice.
