Samovarteateret is a professional theatre established by Bente S. Andersen in Kirkenes in 1990. The theatre has set up more than 45 professional theatre productions with stage artists from 16 different countries.
Samovarteateret works locally, nationally and internationally, and produces 2-3 performances each year that tours Norway, The High North and Europe.
Kirkenes - on the same latitute as Tromsø, but east of Istanbul. 1 km from the Barents sea, 12 km from the Russian border and 50 km from the Finnish border. It is equally as far from Kirkenes to Oslo, as from Oslo to Rome.
In over 20 years Samovarteateret has developed new-written drama. Our goal is to create unique, exiting and realistic performances. To achieve this we have developed our own distinctive Samovar methodology.
