Ibrahim Fazlic

Ibrahim Fazlic (1994) is an artist, playwright, actor and performer based in Oslo. He trained as an actor at North University (class of 2016) and has since written and performed his own plays as well as collaborating with other artists.

His fascination for the theatre began when as a 16-year-old student, he visited Teaterhuset Avant Garden, now relocated and renamed Rosendal Teater (which Ibrahim had the honor of opening in 2019).

Fazlic was one of two “young artist(s)of the year” at Festspillene i Nord-Norge where he performed his piece EMAJPSIN. He was nominated for the Æddaprisen in 2012 as a debut playwright for his play Fantastisk which was a part of the young playwrights’ season at Trøndelag Teater. In 2019 and 2020 he was a part of the professional selection committee at the Norwegian Arts council, reading and assessing over 1000 applications each year. 
He has been a is a resident playwright at the National Centre for New Playwrighting, [Dramatikkens Hus] in Oslo since 2019.

“I see Ibrahim Fazlic's work as a neo-baroque performance, which chooses to explore the surfaces as well as the depths, which changes genre constantly, which is high and low, which as easily employs juggling as tragedy and which constantly twists the perspectives from the recognisable to the unexpected. And all within themes that overlap and the new realities of Norwegian society. He also used this neo-baroque approach with great success in the solo performance Prty Lyf in 2018. As an actor and playwright, the 26-year-old Ibrahim Fazlic is an exciting and talented addition to Norwegian theatre. A Muslim Afro-Joik (in Swedish) in Norway premiered at the Festival in Northern Norway 2019, and one can only hope that many more people around the country will have a chance to see this performance.”
