Fortellerfestivalen (The Norwegian Storytelling Festival) is a storytelling festival located in Norway. Fortellerfestivalen is an annual festival that showcases both the Norwegian and International art of storytelling. Fortellerfestivalen was started in 2004 and has for the last few years been located at Dramatikkens hus in Oslo every spring. Fortellerfestivalen is arranged by a foundation called Stiftelsen Fortellerfestivalen and is run by money from the government and other foundations.
The theme of the Storyteller Festival 2016 is ”Pure Shit”. An intriguing metaphor, we hope, as we want a firm thematic grip on this years program making it pure shit angled from a diversity of perspectives. We also want to mingle different oral approaches to storytelling, crossing borders of genres.
