The company was founded by Norwegian actress Elisabeth Dahl and director Alfredo Michelsen in 2012. The Norwegian Shakespeare Company stages the best of English-speaking drama tailored specifically for Norwegian audiences. We are driven to reclaim the poetry and meaning that is inevitably lost in translation. Our goal is to provide a genuine experience of this rich culture that can only truly be performed in its original language. Through movement and text, the company aims to create visually bold, moving and playful productions. We especially look to bring new life to the works of the greatest playwright of them all, William Shakespeare.
