OYSTEIN (ØYSTEIN) JOHANSENPRINT THIS PAGE
Born in Norway the theatre-maker Øystein Johansen graduated in 2010 from the Mime department in Amsterdam School of the Arts. He was also awarded a Top Naeff, the award that in rare cases is presented to students who deliver an exceptional artistic contribution. His work is not commonplace. It is intelligent and comical, but of the absurd and terrifying kind. International success was bound to come; Johansen's pieces have already been performed in Iran, Kosovo, Italy, The Netherlands and Norway. His latest piece “Wherever we go” was made in Huis van Bourgondië in Maastricht, The Netherlands, and premiered March 2012. This summer he made “Ekspedisjon” with The Great Pretenders in Norway.
