Øystein Ulsberg Brager
Øystein Ulsberg Brager is the artistic director and theatre director of Imploding Fictions and Oslo International Theatre. He is also the administrative manager of Oslo International Theatre.
In 2011 Øystein Ulsberg Brager won The Hedda Award in the category of special artistic achievement for his work with Oslo International Theatre.
The Hedda jury gave the following reason:
"The selection of Norwegian performing arts has never been as rich and diverse as it is today. But a newcomer in the arena has, until now, gotten little attention. Totally undeserved, as the project not only has fine artistic qualities, it is also original and different. Purposefully and selectively the emphasis is on an area sometimes neglected on the Norwegian stage: Foreign contemporary drama. The project has presented a total of 12 texts by international playwrights. Not performances in the usual term of the word, but staged readings in which the director and the actors with simple measures have created performances worth seeing, while proving that text is still, today, an important condition for good theatre.
The award for Special Artistic Achievement goes to Oslo International Theatre, represented by Øystein Ulsberg Brager."
