Torbjørn Ljunggren has collaborated with John-Kristian Alsaker on Alice in Wonderland (2006) at The National Venue of Theatre, Singin' in the rain at Oslo Nye Teater (Oslo New Theatre) in 2009 and Pinocchio at Teater Manu (2010), and with Susanne Münzner on Leonce and Lena at The National Theatre in 2008, among others.

In 2011 he shared The Hedda Award in the category of best visual design with John-Kristian Alsaker and Øyvind Wangensteen for the stage design, video and lighting for Ti liv* (Ten lives), script and direction by Kjetil Bang-Hansen, The National Theatre.

The Hedda jury's reason in 2011 sounded as follows:

"The award winners in this category show the amazing possibilities there lie in innovative collaboration between stage design, video projection and lighting design. Thanks to their magical creative abilities the Dovre Express thunders across one of the smallest stages in the country, motorbikes and lorries rage up narrow mountain roads, and we experience rose-painted mansion interiors and Norwegian train coupes while the actors elegantly wanders in and out of historically correct film projections. It is impossible to separate one winner's efforts from the other's – or the third's: They are intrinsically linked to one another.

Thus the award goes to JOHN-KRISTIAN ALSAKER, TORBJØRN LJUNGGREN AND ØYVIND WANGENSTEEN for stage design, video and lighting design respectively, for Ti liv* (Ten lives), at The Torshov Theatre."
