Come Closer and Anxiety, Panic, and the Hatred were developed during a residency at the
Greenhouse Theater Center (Jennifer Kincaid, Managing Director) that began on 20 September
Ensemble Free Theater Norway was founded in July 2010 by American theater artist Brendan
McCall to nurture young playwrights and directors, particularly within the Nordic region.
The aim is to foster the resources necessary to create an independent theater scene within
Norway that is global in perspective. The 12-week residency in Chicago, plus
collaborations earlier this year with Belarus Free Theater and New York University´s
Tisch School of the Arts, are designed to foster international collaboration in theater
(especially playwriting) beyond Norway.
McCall moved to Oslo in 2008, and served as the Rektor of The International Theater
Academy Norway for 2 years, until June 2010. Before moving to Norway, McCall worked
professionally as an actor, director, and choreographer out of New York for 18 years, and
his work has been presented internationally in over 15 countries. Teaching appointments
include Yale School of Drama (2002-08), New School for Drama (2005-08), New York
University´s Tisch School of the Arts (1994-2001, 2004-05), and many more.
