BIT Teatergarasjen produces, co-produces and presents international and Norwegian contemporary art, theatre and dance, with specific emphasis on projects that stimulate international co-production and cooperation between different fields of art. BIT was established as a festival in 1983 and became an all-year theatre venue in 1990. It is one of the main producers and co-producers of international contemporary theatre and dance in Norway and cooperates with theatres and festivals worldwide.
In addition to the seasonal programme, BIT Teatergarasjen is responsible for two alternating, biennial festivals: Oktoberdans, a dance festival, and Meteor, a theatre festival. Both take place in October and usually last for ten days. Both festivals have gained solid recognition internationally and are unique within the field of contemporary dance and theatre in Norway.
