a national performing arts archive
This gallery provides an overview of all posters from the Sceneweb archive. It includes posters from the 1830es until now.
Throughout time, posters have been an important part of the marketing of theatre and dance productions. The oldest posters in the Sceneweb archive are from the 1830es and look similar to placard newspapers without photos. They include information about the production in question, who are involved, and where and when it is performed. One example of this type of poster is the poster for Christiania Theater's production The Campbells from 1838.View gallery

From 2009 onwards, the festival has been arranged every second year. The Performance Festival is arranged over two days, and the schedule includes work of Norwegian and international artists.
