The ICON programme presents ground-breaking international dramatic art.

The International Contemporary Stage Programme (ICON) presents leading international companies within the dramatic arts.

Through ICON, the audience can discover a new world of grand visual experiences, theatre concerts, and other surprising genres. ICON aims to introduce historical highlights, modern theatre innovators, leading companies and directors.

After the closure of Samtidsfestivalen (Festival of Contemporary Drama), the National Theatre will still invite innovative theatre productions to Oslo, but instead of hosting them all for two weeks at the start of the season, we choose to spread these tasty treats across the whole year. Keep checking up on our website for an updated schedule.
