Based in a venue of its own in Oslo, Theatre of Cruelty regularly presents original work for stage which draws inspiration from its namesake concept of theatre formulated by the French visionary and poet Antonin Artaud.

The director Lars Øyno has delivered lectures and workshops both in Norway and abroad, and the company frequently collaborates with other theatre groups and institutions.

The Theatre of Cruelty is supported by The Norwegian Culture Fund/Arts Council Norway.
