Oslo International Acting Festival is an international arena for theoretical and empirical exchange on acting methods and performative approaches organized by The Academy of Theatre, Oslo National Academy of The Arts and The Norwegian Actors' Center. Some of the world’s leading practitioners and pedagogues are coming, and all workshops will be held in English.

The festival is open to professional actors, acting students and other theater and film practitioners.

This year the festival will take place from the 1st to the 7th June, under the heading "the audience". The festival shall question and explore working methods and acting techniques related to the audience: What happens when you include the audience already at the development stage? How can an actor work with his relationship to the audience? Can the audience become an active part of the performance, and how does that affect the actor?
