KompaniTO is a Norwegian circus and dance company founded in 2014 by Tamar Ohana Goksøyr and Mari Dahl Stoknes. In the crossover between circus, dance, physical theatre, music and text, we work towards creating stage art that is open, challenging and welcoming. 

As well as creating and performing our own performances, KompaniTO is collaborating with outstanding artists and companies. KompaniTO also organises the circus and performing arts festival MERGE NORGE - Scenekunstfestival for nysirkus.
