GROWTH OF THE SOIL – REVISITED

 Nature is boundless

 “Mankind and nature don’t bomb each other; they grant each other rights; they don’t compete, don’t race after something, they follow each other. Amidst all this you are. The mountains, forests, heaths, fields, sky and the stars – and it’s not poor or rationed; it is boundless.” (Hamsun, Growth of the Soil)

 After our acclaimed production of Ibsen’s Lady from the Sea, the director Tatu Hämäläinen and his team tackle yet another iconic Norwegian work, Knut Hamsun’s Growth of the Soil – a pillar in European literature. This is a story of humanity’s ability to adapt and survive, and its destruction. Hamsun won the Nobel Prize in literature in 1920 with this novel.

 Hamsun has said that he wrote the novel for coming generations, for the future. The central questions in the work: how we should treat nature and each other, and what the purpose of our lives is, resonate as strongly in our day as in Hamsun’s.

 In Growth of the Soil – Revisited we explore how we can make use of Hamsun’s insights today, in our complicated lives.

 We revisit Growth of the Soil, but with an eye on today’s challenges and we invite our audience to an exciting and sensory performance.
