Per Kristian Solbakken

Per Kristian Solbakken is a Norwegian stage designer.

Per Kristian Solbakken came to Trøndelag Theatre as a prop master, but soon started his real career as a stage designer in 1981, with Golden Leaf Strut by Julian Garner.

As opposed to most stage designers, who tend to prefer freelance careers, he has been steadily employed by Trøndelag Theatre since then, even though he has also had some assignments at other theatres.

Among his stage designs are Berlin Poplars (2006), Norge Midt-Norge* (Norway Middle-Norway, homophone for Norway, My Norway, Sceneweb's comment) (2005) and 24 Unsuccessful Norwegians (2003).
