The International Ibsen Festival opens the autumn season at The National Theatre of Norway every other year. The festival celebrates the Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen through Norwegian and international performances of high artistic quality. Most of the performances are held at Ibsen's own theatre and the world's foremost Ibsen laboratory - Oslo's National Theatre.
This year's Ibsen Festival has approximately 40 performances on the programme – each representing a unique approach to Ibsen's works. You may, among other things, experience several interpretations of Hedda Gabler, a unique mashup of The Wild Duck and An Enemy of the People, an experimental Hungarian take on A Doll's House, a post-apocalyptic tale of Europe based on Little Eyolf, Peer Gynt with a woman in the title role, and An Enemy of the People adapted to describe the current situation in Zimbawe.
The programme additionally features several performances by this year's winner of The International Ibsen Award, Forced Entertainment. The UK-based ensemble is known for their groundbreaking and genre-defying approach to theatre.
The festival also offers a side program filled with magical moments, including Ibsen quizes, Ibsen for children, Ibsen lounge, Ibsen stunts, tours and exhibitions by this year's festival artist Marianne Heske.
