On the webpage of Oslo International Theatre the following, among other things, is written:
"OIT is an offer for those interested in contemporary drama, wishing to discover new playwrights and plays, no matter if these are theatres, independent companies or theatre makers looking for plays to stage, playwrights seeking inspiration for their own work or ordinary theatre spectators wishing to see works formerly not performed in Norway. We have a wide international network that we use in the work of discovering dramatic works.
Oslo International Theatre (OIT) was started as a project in which Imploding Fictions (www.implodingfictions.com) and Michael H. Sciarrone/Teatersirkus (www.teatersirkus.no) collaborated. Today Imploding Fictions manages OIT.
Oslo International Theatre is supported by Arts Council Norway, the municipality of Oslo, Dramatikkens hus, the freedom of expression foundation Fritt Ord, Goethe-Institut and The Fund for Performing Artists."
Oslo International Theatre won The Hedda Award in the category of special artistic achievement in 2011.
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."
