BIT Teatergarasjen co-produces and presents Norwegian and international performing arts with an emphasis on projects that stimulate international collaboration and works that transcends artistic genres.
BIT was established in 1983/84 as an international theatre festival, and since 1990 it has been an all-year theatre venue with BIT Teatergarasjen in Nøstegaten in Bergen as its permanent arena for the production and presentation of performances. Until the new Teatergarasjen venue is complete, the performances are presented in various venues in Bergen.
Today, BIT Teatergarasjen is one of Norway’s major producers and co-producers of international performing arts, collaborating with theatre and dance venues and festivals in several European countries on a regular basis. BIT Teatergarasjen is also presenting two international biannual festivals Oktoberdans (dance) and Meteor (theatre) as well as the interdiciplinary and multi-artistic PrøveRommet.
