"Ellen Isefiær var en dyktig skuespiller som etter hvert gikk over til å bli instruktør. I begge funksjoner gav hun et stort publikum sterke teateropplevelser, og hun betydde mye for mange skuespilleres kunstneriske utvikling. [...]   Isefiær iscenesatte mer enn 200 oppsetninger, hvorav 50 på Trøndelag Teater. Som instruktør var hun sikker og myndig."

Dette skrev Thoralf Berg i sin biografi om den norske teatersjefen, instruktøren og skuespillerinnen Ellen Isefiær. Les mer om henne her.

UNIMA Norway is the Norwegian section of UNIMA International (UNion Internationale de la MArionette).

UNIMA Norway has the same aims as the mother organisation plus the following aim:

”… to work to promote the interest for, and the dissemination of puppetry in Norway, as an artistic genre and as an aid within pedagogy and therapy."

The association also will attempt to spread knowledge about Norwegian puppetry abroad and to convey visiting performances of international quality theatre in Norway.

UNIMA Norway publishes Ånd i Hanske (a fanzine whose name literally means Spirit in a Glove and is a wordplay on the expression Hand - in Norwegian Hånd - in a Glove) and arranges the festival Fri Figur (literally: Free figure). The association also manages the award Birgit Strøms minnepris (a memorial award after Birgit Strøm) and Tyrihansprisen.
