Find out more about Ibsen’s "Peer Gynt" and the historical Per Gynt that lived in the Gudbrandsdalen valley in the 17th century.
The theatre production "Peer Gynt" at Gålå is situated in the very place where Henrik Ibsen might have heard the stories about the local Peer Gynt. And the play is not just a fairy-tale. It’s a reflection of its time, as well as about the Norwegian culture, nature and a local legend.
The story moves between reflecting reality and a fairy-tale with trolls and mystical creatures. The core of the story is, however, not merely about fairy-tales or Norwegian attitude. It is something much more real and universal that everyone can relate to, no matter what country you are from; it is about the "self".
