Så fint at du fant oss! Vi trenger nemlig statister og ildsjeler som vil bli med oss på reisen inn i Peers utrolige verden. Det vil bli rappellering, troll, galskap og ikke minst en opplevelse for livet når Peer Gynt skal settes opp i Fjæreheia i juli 2022.
Målet til Ibsenkompaniet er å skape en fast arena i Fjæreheia hvor vi kan gi unike muligheter til alle typer talenter – og å være et bindeledd mellom unge utøvere og den profesjonelle bransjen. Planen, i tillegg til å gjøre Ibsen hvert år, er å skape en arena som er lettere tilgjengelig for alle grupper med et brennende ønske om å uttrykke noe sammen.
Her har du med andre ord muligheten til å bli en del av et team som kan jobbe og utvikle seg sammen, år etter år. Det vil du vel ikke gå glipp av?
Send oss en epost til firstname.lastname@example.org med en kort kommentar om hvorfor du vil være en del av dette eventyret, så hører du fra oss!

Kåre Conradi and director Kjetil Bang-Hansen discuss all things Ibsen and the company’s latest production When We Dead Awaken in today’s The Times. When We Dead Awaken opens at London’s Coronet Theatre on Thursday (24 February 2022).
We are proud to announce Sir Trevor Nunn is the Norwegian Ibsen Company‘s first Patron.
Sir Trevor has been the Artistic Director for the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Royal National Theatre, and the Theatre Royal, Haymarket. He has directed dramas for the stage, including Macbeth, as well as opera and musicals, and has directed works for film and television.
He has been nominated for the Tony Award for Best Direction of a Musical, the Tony Award for Best Direction of a Play, the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Director, and the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Director of a Musical, winning Tonys for Cats, Les Misérables, and Nicholas Nickleby and the Olivier Awards for productions of Summerfolk, The Merchant of Venice, Troilus and Cressida, and Nicholas Nickleby.
His knowledge and passion of Ibsen and Shakespeare will be a huge inspiration for the Norwegian Ibsen Company.
The Norwegian Ibsen Company enters Fjæreheia. With an intensely visual Peer Gynt that begins after dark, Ibsen’s permanent mark will be carved into the rock wall.
Inspired by the critically acclaimed drawings by Geir Moen, Peer Gynt returns to Fjæreheia. One of the biggest audience successes in Fjæreheia was Reidar Sørensen’s interpretation of Peer Gynt. Now it is his son, Kim Sørensen, who’s responsible for an intense and powerful version of Ibsen’s immortal classic.
Actor and director Sørensen believes Peer Gynt speaks to us all, in all stages of our lives, and pulls on our heart strings time and time again.
When you manage to avoid responsibility throughout your entire life, old age turns into an encounter with a person we might not recognise.
Kim Sørensen acted in Peer Gynt when it was staged in Fjæreheia in 1991. Speaking with Sørensen, he says:
“This is a journey into a human mind. Everyone says Peer is lying, but is he really? Who is Peer? Who am I? A person who isn’t acknowledged may have a tendency to twist the truth, but is that a lie? Can the lies be truths? A person who feels ignored is a person on the edge! Is Peer being pushed to the brink, or does he want this? Can reality be somewhere between truth and lies?”
“When We Dead Awaken is a strange, beautiful and bitter play about art, love, ambition and freedom. Like a musical quartet, 4 people, 4 elements, 4 voices, 4 instruments play different songs in a complicated melody. It is a play for our time, as they find themselves living in a changed world. Bewildered, how do they move forward?” – Director Kjetil Bang Hansen
The Norwegian Ibsen Company returns to The Coronet Theatrewith a new adaptation of When We Dead Awaken, Henrik Ibsen’s enigmatic final play.
It is rare that anyone gets the chance to rediscover a lost love.
In the depths of a winter Rubek, once a celebrated sculptor, returns to Norway with his estranged young wife Maia – only to bump into his great lost love and muse Irene. Is this their opportunity to return to a world where there is meaning, hope and happiness – to awaken from the dead?
Kåre Conradi and The Norwegian Ibsen Company have collaborated with Haptiq AS, VisitOSLO, Good Morning Naug and Eiendomsspar AS to develop ‘Oslo Spex‘, so you can join Henrik Ibsen on a tour through the streets of Oslo.
More than a 100 years ago, Henrik Ibsen was a well-known sight on the streets of Oslo – “and now he’s back”, says Widar Pastoor at VisitOSLO. He continues: – The format is playful and engaging – you can even take a picture with Ibsen!
Oslo Spex is a new augmented reality (AR)-application, free of charge, for smart phones with focus on Henrik Ibsen and Oslo. In the app you get information through sound and text, both in English and Norwegian.
