Tradition and Innovation in Performing Arts

Tradition and innovation in performing Arts as an institution, our highest goal is for the students to advance as practitioners while reaching a high level of performance with a reflected attitude to tradition and innovation.

For students in performing arts, stage experience is one of the most important and developing practices to attain. We arrange up to 200 concerts and performances during the academic year. The students at the faculty participate in workshops, masterclasses, and interdisciplinary stage productions, both in the Stavanger region and on tour.
Our faculty is beautifully located in Bjergsted Cultural Park, with immediate proximity to Stavanger Concert Hall, Stavanger Symphony Orchestra, and several other actors from the professional and voluntary music and cultural life.
