About
SART Kompani

SART Company was established in 2019 by Norwegian artist Sara Røisland Torsvik. Torsvik works conceptually by exploring and expanding the frames around the performance and collaborating cross-aesthetically, in dialogue with different art forms in a hybrid-scenic language. The creations explores existential themes, such as absolute presence, identity and (bodily-)memories, and seeks the real, unrefined expression.
