- Næss, Tale 
I am an Artistic Research Fellow at Oslo National Academy of the arts, the Academy of Theatre. I am a playwright, author and dramaturge, and my research is in the field of performative text. My background is as an author. I had my first novel published in 1992, and my first play commissioned and staged in 1999. Since then I have strived to understand the performative aspects of text production. Written traditional plays and worked across the field. I have worked with dramatic installations, radio plays, and texts for the web. Written librettos and done a series of interdisciplinary work. Since 2012 I’ve worked as a dramaturge at Hålogaland Teater, and curated a series of twenty one laboratories for the performing arts under the heading ArtLab. My method for working is exploratory. I switch between writing solo, doing workshop with actors, and more experimental and collaborative work. A fascination for the voice and its affective expressiveness is often at the core of my work. I’m interested in multi focus, parallell stories and imperative adresses. In my fellowship I plan to produce texts that resemble traditional dramatic texts, voice-collages and dramatic installation work. As I see it, these processes will go hand in hand with more reflective activities.
