Culture of Norway
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search Norwegian culture is closely linked to the country's history and geography . The unique Norwegian farm culture , sustained to this day, has resulted not only from scarce resources and a harsh climate but also from ancient property laws . In the 18th century, it brought about a strong romantic nationalistic movement, which is still visible in the Norwegian language and media . In the 19th century, Norwegian culture blossomed as efforts continued to achieve an independent identity in the areas of literature, art and music. This continues today in the performing arts and as a result of government support for exhibitions, cultural projects and artwork.
edit General background
edit Foreign influences
The greatest sources of influence on Norwegian culture have been Denmark followed by Sweden. Others include the Lutheran church and Germany during the Middle Ages France during the 18th century, Germany again during the 19th century and the English-speaking world after World War II . Norway today enjoys a strongly adapted western culture . Over the past 30 years, Norway has evolved from an ethnically homogeneous society to a culturally diverse nation with large immigrant communities, especially in Oslo where a quarter of the citizens are immigrants.

The largest number of immigrants Norway came from Sweden and Denmark, with the third largest contingent coming from Pakistan. In 1999, the population grew by 0.7 percent, the largest annual rate of growth since the first half of the 1950s. This unusual growth is accounted for by the arrival of 19,300 persons from abroad. Approximately 67,200 persons with a political refugee background lived in Norway at the beginning of 1999. Among the recent refugees, the largest groups are from Bosnia (11,000), Vietnam (10,500), and Iran (8,100). Refugees are concentrated in and around the largest cities, with approximately one-third living in the Oslo area. Linguistic Affiliation.

Home How to use this site Subscription Visiting Arts Visiting Arts Norway Cultural Profiles Project Cultural Profile You are here: Welcome to the Norway Cultural Profile Search Welcome to the Norway Cultural Profile Introduction to Norway ... Next Culture in Norway Situated far from centres of culture such as Florence, Rome and Paris, Norway has often been isolated from major European cultural trends and developments. Yet a strong culture was flourishing here from at least the ninth century. Findings from burial sites indicate that the Vikings were great shipbuilders with a strongly-developed artistic tradition represented in crafts, wood carving and jewellery. Significantly, these skills were also passed on to those parts of Europe which they occupied. The beautifully-decorated stave churches built after Christianity was introduced into Norway also underscore the artistic abilities of the Norwegian people. The Gothic cathedral of Trondheim, known as Nidarosdomen , represents a golden age of Norwegian cultural development. It was the last monument to be erected before the dark era in which nearly half the population was wiped out by bubonic plague and Norway ceased to be an independent state. During the course of the 20th century Norway, like many other countries, was affected by many foreign (and particularly since World War II, American) cultural influences. This development, taking place against a background of widespread determination to uphold and support the uniqueness of Norwegian culture, has created an interesting mixed expression in contemporary Norwegian artistic life.

CULTURE Norway has preserved a rich folk culture that retains elements from the Viking age. Norwegians today have a great interest in preserving folk art and music. The collecting and recording of folk music is supported by the government. Modern Norwegian culture has evolved from the great flowering of the arts that occurred in the 19th century under the influence of national romanticism. Early expressions of a truly Norwegian style were produced by painter Johan Christian Dahl and composer Edvard Grieg. Other important artists include playwright Henrik Ibsen, writer Knut Hamsun, composer Christian Sinding, painter Edvard Munch, and sculptor Gustav Vigeland, whose sculpture park in Oslo has gained international attention. Permanent theatres have been established in several cities, and the state traveling theatre, the Riksteatret, organizes tours throughout the country, giving as many as 1,200 performances annually. The Norwegian Opera, opened in 1959, requires state subsidies (as do most other theatres). Films in Norway are subject to censorship, primarily on grounds of violence and, to a lesser extent, erotic content. The production of Norwegian-made feature films is subsidized, but they usually number about 10 each year.

Christmas and the Nisse
The Nisse is deeply ingrained in Norway Culture and Tradition. The Nisse is thought of as short and stocky with a long grey or white beard and a knitted red cap. He wears dark knickers and a shirt and vest or a sweater. He brings children Christmas gifts. But this was not always the role of the nisse. Norway Culture - Christmas and the Nisse Decades ago, he was though of as the protector of the family farm. Stories about the nisse have been passed down for generations. Norwegians in the old days believed in stories about the netherworld figures. The Nisse was powerful. He seemed to like humans, if he was treated with the respect he felt he deserved. On the farm, he helped with the work in mysterious ways. For example, because he enjoyed helping horses more than cows, he would steal hay from the cows to give an extra portion to a favorite horse. His trickery could contribute to crop failure and sickness for both animals and people if he was not treated well. The Nisse expected being served a large wooden bowl filled with sour cream porridge, with a big "eye of butter" in the middle, on Christmas Eve. Today, he prefers rice porridge. When the people on the farm went to find the bowls the next morning, the dishes would be empty and clean. That was proof enough that the nisse really existed!

Welcome to the new Oslo Opera House
The opera's main stage has 1364 seats with 400 seats in the second largest stage. In the rehearsals stage there are 200 seats. The building area is 38 500 m2. Notably, the building is made to be skateboard-friendly, encouraging skateboarders through the use of materials and angles. Equally, areas that are acoustically sensitive discourage skateboarders through a contrasting use of poor materials and angles for skating.
We can promise an extensive program going forward.
