11–15, 17 and 19 September: How should a life be lived?
How should a life be lived?
Hedda Gabler is one of Ibsen’s most enigmatic characters. She is beautiful, smart, resourceful and has just returned home from her honeymoon, together with her successful husband and rising academic Jørgen Tesman. But behind the polished facade, Hedda is fighting private battles.
She and Jørgen are expecting their first child, and Hedda is far from prepared for this event. In her quest for a solution, Hedda sets in motion a game with fatal consequences for both herself and the people around her. What paths does Hedda find that are really hers to choose? What choices do we make in our own lives because we actually want to? And what do we do because we feel we must?
These questions form the starting point for director Sofia Jupither’s exploration of Henrik Ibsen’s famous work from 1890. Jupither has a solid grounding in Ibsen. Her critically acclaimed and public success Little Eyolf has played to full houses at the National Theatre since its première during the Ibsen Festival of 2014 – and was recently performed in London.
On the Torshov theatre’s intimate stage, the public can feel the pulse of Hedda Gabler in Jupither’s adaptation. Can a gunshot ease the pain?
The performance is included in the programme of the 2018 International Ibsen Festival, and will be performed with English subtitles during the festival period (8–19 September).
