Overview

Former bank manager John Gabriel Borkman has served a sentence for embezzlement. Humiliated and bitter, he and his wife Gunhild have isolated themselves on separate floors of their house, and have no contact with each other. Throughout this time of crisis, their son, Erhart, has been taken care of by Gunhild's twin sister, Ella Rentheim, whom John Gabriel once chose not to marry, as a trade-off for prestige and power. Now Ella is fatally ill, and has returned to adopt Erhart and give him her own name. Gunhild refuses – Erhart is the person who must rebuild the honour of the Borkman family. But John Gabriel has in his solitude made other plans for his son's future.

Leading German director Jan Bosse is known for developing an anarchistic joy in his productions, where the audience becomes an integral part of the performance. In this production of Henrik Ibsen's John Gabriel Borkman, Amfiscenen is changed to a public space, where the audience is a part of the story.
