A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen


Visjoner Teater’s production of ”A Doll’s House” is the first part of our Ibsen trilogy: “IBSEN UP CLOSE”,  where Henrik Ibsen´s drama is moved out of the traditional theatre space into realistic settings, as a site specific action.

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

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 has had 114 sold out performances. King Harald and Queen Sonja of Norway arranged to have their own performance. The Doll´s House production was invited to Stockholm International Theater Festival 2008 and got rave critics. In the spring 2009 the performance is invited to Ibsen Festval in Krakow, to Førde and Ski.
