About Tiril Pharo

Tiril is the artistic leader of Tiril Pharo Productions.

At the farm Åsheim in Indre Østfold, she develops playful performances for young and adult audiences, often in an interactive setting. Tiril focuses on the meeting between the audience and the performer - in performances where the audience gets a little unusual perspective. The performances are interactive or immersive and often site-specific - they can take place on the field, in old houses, or on an athletics field. Tiril devises performances and is happy to have contact with the target group early in the process. She writes stage text, directs, and acts. She has been involved in interactive, co-creative processes for 20 years - and enjoys the meeting between people and the theater's potential for movement and consideration.


Tiril is an educated actor from the Oslo National Academy of Arts, Norway. She is a member of the Norwegian Actors 'Association and the Dramatists' Association. Tiril is associated with various artists and institutions and in recent years has especially collaborated with Østfold International Theater.

Together with Sigrid Edvardsson, choreographer and Isak Anderssen, composer and musician, she developed the tragicomedies Promille, Hurrahølet and Minnespor, where they intertwined music, movement and text.
