BIT Teatergarasjen produces, co-produces and presents international and Norwegian contemporary art, theatre and dance, with specific emphasis on projects that stimulate international co-production and cooperation between different fields of art.

BIT was established as a festival in 1983 and became an all-year theatre venue in 1990. BIT is one of the main producers and co-producers of international contemporary theatre and dance in Norway and cooperates with theatres and festivals world wide.

BIT Teatergarasjen is responsible for two alternating, biannual festivals in addition to the seasonal programme: Oktoberdans, a dance festival and Meteor, a theatre festival. They take place in October and are usually lasting for 10 days. The festivals have gained solid recognition internationally and are unique within the field of contemporary dance and theatre in Norway.
