This is an innovative theater program for creative and curious individuals who want to expand the idea of what theater can be.

You will get to experiment with everything from performance and installation to monologues and larger stage productions in Scenekunst.

We start the year by reactivating our imagination through play and improvisation. Imagination and creativity play an important role in developing characters and scenes.


When we create performances, we sometimes start with written text, other times with music, set design, or an exciting location in nature that we want to explore.

We use costumes, makeup, create characters, and play in new universes.

We find spaces, both indoors and outdoors, and explore and develop scenes on the spot.

Devising is a working method that we use a lot. It is a craft that involves making theater from scratch. Sometimes we have a more traditional approach where we start with a script, work on character development and acting techniques. Regardless of the working method, we never lose sight of the playful approach to the material.

We continuously work on creating an ensemble that will become truly comfortable with each other, and in this way, you will gradually dare to challenge yourself.


We connect with the theater community in Bergen and get to meet performance artists, actors, and attend festivals such as Meteor, Oktoberdans, and the Fringe Festival.

Together, we make each other better, support each other, and push each other to realize our untapped potential. We inspire each other. Laugh and cry together and make friends for life.

"Blåtur" in Western Norway

Mandatory: Yes

Price: Included in course price

Duration: 2 dager

Towards the end of the school year, we go on a joint "blåtur" to an unknown place in Western Norway.

The term "blåtur" may not be that well known, but many people have been on a "blåtur" without knowing that's what it's called. A "blåtru"r is simply a surprise trip - where you join the trip, but have no idea where the trip will take you. A trip "out of the blue", if you will.

This is primarily a social trip that we take to have a nice end to the school year.

At the folk high school, you're allowed to be social and have fun together. Here, we have safe boundaries that allow you to be with friends and have fun.

Come along to Bergen

As a student at Fana Folk High School, you will become familiar with Bergen.

Bergen has a vibrant cultural scene. Throughout the year, we go to theater performances, exhibitions, and concerts.

The city also hosts a variety of festivals. During the school year, there are international film festivals, theater festivals, and music festivals in the city.

You also have time to explore the city on your own. Go to the cinema, stroll around and observe the city's life, go up to Fløyen or have a coffee at one of the cozy cafes.

Creative main subjects and many elective subjects

The school has many different main subjects. This creates a school environment with diversity and many different types of people.

You immerse yourself in the main subject with your class throughout the school year.

In addition, you choose from many exciting elective subjects. You choose elective subjects several times during the school year and can choose new subjects each time.

Safe and educational trips

We have a joint start-up trip at the beginning of the year. This is a cozy low-threshold trip that everyone participates in.

All the main subjects go on study trips. Some travel abroad and others stay in Norway. Our study trips combine academic content with social community on the trip.

Get to know Norwegian language and culture

During a year at a folk high school in Bergen, you will make Norwegian friends, learn some Norwegian, and get to know Norwegian culture and society.

Our language courses are suitable for beginners and students with som previous knowledge of Norwegian. After a year at Fana folk high school, you can expect to understand and speak Norwegian reasonably well.
