Østfold Internasjonale Teater

In autumn 2022, ØIT has invited six artists (Associate Artists) to Østfold to explore different places and contexts together. The aim is to develop concepts for new works in the meeting with the region.

The framework for the works is a circular geographical area with a 30 kilometer radius and Fredrikstad as the centre. Within this lies a varied landscape that contains examples of most of the topography found in Europe. Local partners will contribute insight and knowledge when we introduce the artists to Fredrikstad and build a network around them and their activities.

A two-day seminar open to external participants will be organized during the laboratory.

Professional seminar aimed at professional artists, cultural workers, cultural politicians, and interested parties from other sectors of society, such as urban and regional development, agriculture, environment and industry.
In connection with the artistic laboratory of (UN)COMMON SPACES, a two-day specialist seminar open to external participants is also organised. We will reflect on topics such as ecology, sustainable social development in the Nordics, "spatial consciousness", world exhibitions and the anthroposcene (the proposed geological epoch for the state the earth is in). We will focus on local involvement with international artists. Some programs will take place outside. Welcome to a different seminar experience!

Curated by James Ray Moore, Artistic director of Østfold Internasjonale Teater.
