Hedda Gabler is considered one of Ibsen’s most enigmatic women, and one of the major roles in classical realism.
When Juni Dahr takes Hedda out of the bourgeois theater hall and into the real room at the Admini, we get what Jon Thorsås in Kulturspeilet calls “The closest we come to a perfect Hedda.” The proximity of the audience requires the actors not to “play theater” but use us a natural play style.
The performance has been nominated for the Hedda Prize, it has visited the Retroperspektywy Theater Festival in Poland, Fadjr Festival in Tehran in Iran and the Almada International Theater Festival in Lisbon, where it won the festival’s audience prize. It is also featured at the Japan International Theater Festival.
Henrik Ibsen is brought out of the theater and into real rooms. It provides power and realistic understanding of what is happening in Ibsen’s inner drama. With an audience of 40 -50 in close proximity, it becomes a very special setting… – Aftenposten
A brave action. This is a pure and clear Hedda Gabler in a scenography that fits: Pulled between the closed room and the freedom of nature. – Dagbladet
