Being programmed at Black Box teater

In August 2022, Jørgen Knudsen will take over from Anne-Cécile Sibué-Birkeland as Artistic & General Director at Black Box teater (see more info here).

He will start in May 2022 for an overlap with Anne-Cécile Sibué-Birkeland.
Anne-Cécile Sibué-Birkeland is responsible for the program 2022, which is already set.
Jørgen Knudsen will be in charge of the artistic program from January 2023.
Due to this transition, we are not able to consider more artistic proposals or programming requests at the moment. Jørgen Knudsen will be in contact with companies and artists from May 2022.

We will update our website and social media with information about how to share information about your work/projects during May 2022.
