Description

Theatre in Norwegian.

Theatre director Alexander Mørk-Eidem has placed Peer in Fredrik Skavlan's talk-show. The result is the tale of the most egocentric man in Norway.

Peer Gynt has turned 50 – and he wants to take stock of his wild life. He wants to place all his cards on the table, in prime time. Thus, Alexander Mørk-Eidem has chosen to let the liar and opportunist express himself in the heart of modern Norway: in studio with talk show host Fredrik Skavlan. Peer is confronted with himself and the life he has lead.

Peer recounts his tale, in verse, like the original play, with a number of Norwegian celebrities present. It turns out that they are characters in the play. Eindride Eidsvold plays Peer, a charming schemer who deals in both weapons and people. And as in any Skavlan show, a musical artist appears. This is Solveig, played by singer-songwriter Amina Sewali. Throughout the show she performs newly written material and well-known evergreens.

Do Norwegians cultivate those aspects of Peer Gynt that Ibsen denounced, namely cynicism, selfishness and the pursuit of one's own success? In 2014 both Peer Gynt and Norway experience a mid-life crisis. Peer turns 50 and Norway celebrates a the 200th anniversary of the consitution. We have reached our goals: money, wealth and status. Now what? Will Peer – and Norway – be caught with their pants down?
