Theatre of Cruelty produced its first performance in collaboration with Trøndelag Theatre in 1989, and was established as a separate group in 1992. Since 2002 we have had our own stage in Hausmannsgt 34 which was established with support from the Norwegian Arts Council.
The company has performed at festivals and stages in Japan, Russia, Turkey, Germany, Poland, England, Sweden, India and France. The company has in some of these places, in addtion to in Ireland and New York, also held workshops.
Theatre of Cruelty make performances within the physical tradition and retrieves basic inspiration from Antonin Artaud’s vision of an anatomical theater.
