Merete Elnan

Head of Department

G2012 ( Universitetsveien 25, Kristiansand )

My main-interest and experience is Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA): performing arts for children, by youth, theatre with children, or theater discussing childhood. I have followed the work of Suzanne Osten and the ensemble Unga Klara for decades, and has several publications that analyses Osten’s work. I have been a board member of the Norwegian Assitej since 2011, and has been a part of the ITYARN (the International Theatre for Young Audiences Research Network) since the start in 2007.
