Why Peer Gynt? Easy!
It's authentic. We are lucky to have internationally-respected, Norwegian Ibsen translator and dramaturg, May-Brit Akerholt as consultant who draws on her own productions of Peer Gynt.
It's timeless. The themes of selfishness, self-indulgence and greed would ring bells for 21st century audiences.
It's serious. Ibsen wrote a highly political dramatization of a life wasted in pursuing dreams, fleeing from responsibility, and seeking power instead of love.
It's Norwegian. No words necessary!
'In the hall of the mountain king' and 'Morning Music'
Rayma Johnson (ex Bangarra Dance Theatre) specially choreographed two items for two guest appearances at the Nordic Noir production in March 2021. Isaac Clark enthralled the audience with his high-octane performance of 'In the Hall of the Mountain King' and Rayma evoked the Australian landscape with her interpretation of 'Morning Music'.
