Dear audience, artists and visitors!

Due to the circumstances regarding the coronavirus, Black Box teater is cancelling all activities until 19 April to prevent further dissemination of the coronavirus. This includes the following events:

Update 27 March:
– 20 April: The process viewing Orfee Schuijt: Thing Power
– 28–29 April: The performance Ingrid Berger Myhre: In Other Words (Premiere)
The cancellations are based on measures related to the corona crisis in Norway and abroad that prevent rehearsals, travels, and restrict public gatherings. The artists and Black Box teater are facing multiple organizational challenges due to the current, uncertain situation. In such a context of global unpredictability, it is impossible for us to welcome the artists and the audience in a safe and suitable way.


We are very sorry about the inconvenience this may cause to the artists and to the audience, but the safety of the community comes first <3 Tickets purchased for the performances are refunded, and we will contact all customers via email.

Please find more information about the precautions we are taking regarding the Coronavirus here.

Black Box teater is an organization dedicated to supporting, co-producing and presenting the indepentent performing arts field, and we recognize that artists and freelancers in the cultural field are particularly vulnerable, both financially and healthily, in this situation. We pay financial commitments that have already been promised in connection with the cancelled events, and we strive to find the best possible solutions for everyone. Our thoughts are also with all freelancers whose work depends on the activities of the theater.

The Norwegian authorities have implemented a package of measures to support the performing arts field and freelancers. Many artists in many countries do not have access to this type of support. We are solidarity and responsible.

We work actively to reschedule the cancelled performances at a later occasion, and we keep a close dialogue with the artists.

Until we meet again at Black Box teater, we hope you are enjoying online communication, virtual gatherings and alternative ways to share and experience art and culture. 

We hope all of you and your loved ones are healthy and in good courage – and that you stay home!

Take care of each other! <3
