More about Bergen Byspill Theatre Group

The most important aim of Bergen Byspill Theatre Group is to perform new and untraditional theatre. The fundamental ingredient in the artistic work is a fusion between the three time dimensions past, present and future. Situated in Bergen, the company finds it natural to use the jester theatre and mystery plays of The Middle Ages as basis for several of its productions.

Bergen Byspill Theatre Group has accumulated competence on The Middle Ages and knows customs, life conditions, clothes styles, musical traditions, theatre and jester expressions. Bergen Byspill also has a large selection of medieval costumes to rent.

Bergen Byspill Theatre Group has established the sub-company Apropos Theater, which main objective is examining new theatre expressions and collaboration forms, within which research-based theatre in which the company collaborates with Rokkan Centre of The University of Bergen is included.
