A doll’s house (Ibsen)

Visjoner Teater’s production of ”A Doll’s House” is the first part of our Ibsen trilogy where Henrik Ibsen´s drama is moved out of the traditional theatre space into realistic settings, as a site specific action, with a small audience is seated close to the action. 

”A Doll’s House” is performed in an authentic apartment, at the home of Nora and Torvald Helmer for an audience of only 40.

Both actors and public are challenged to a new meeting with Henrik Ibsen’s familiar text as it is taken off the stage and placed in new surroundings. How do we now perceive ‘A Doll’s House’, finding ourselves at home with the Helmers, eye-witnesses to the disintegration of their marriage and dreams of love?

“A Doll´s House at Wesselsgate 15“ in Oslo opened May 22 in 2006, and had 114 sold out performances in the first season. The Doll´s House production was invited to Stockholm Culture Festival 2008. In 2009 the performance was invited to the Ibsen Festival in Krakow (Poland), and to Førde and Ski (Norway).

A Doll’s House is performed in the original language Norwegian.
