Brakstad, Arild

Arild Brakstad was born in Bergen, Norway in 1972. He still lives there. Currently he is touring Norway with his one man show. Arild Brakstad has a BSC of cultural science and has also studied theatre and philosophy. As a playwright he made headlines when creating the first black metal musical in the world: “SVARTEDIKET”. The show premiered in 2010 at the Bergen International Festival and was performed 60 times on strong request from the 10.000 people who finally got to see it. Today Arild Brakstad explores (intrusively) Molestus Theater or “Knausgårdtheater” in search of the darkest real life stories to be told in the same manner as “SVARTEDIKET”.
