Enemies in the doll’s house
Proceeding with the research about dramaturgical and scenic creation developed by the GOMPA Project, Enemies in a Dolls’ House is one of the five winners of the International Ibsen Scholarship 2017 award, biannually promoted in Norway in order to encourage performances inspired by Ibsen all around the world.
From an undetermined point in the future, Nora Helmer revisits the decisive moment in which her marriage with Torvald starts falling to pieces. It is also a fundamental moment for her country (not Norway and its crystalline fjords, but Brazil and its recurrent mudslides), submerged in enraged political speeches, oppressions in a variety of levels and hard-to-solve ethical conflicts.
“Enemies in a Dolls’ House” is a play inspired by the works “A Doll’s House” and “An Enemy of the People”, by Henrik Ibsen. The texts of the Norwegian playwright serve as a starting point for the construction of the play, which emphasizes gender issues, corruption and the media omnipresence. The performance unites theater, dance, music and video, to recreate the characters impasses and their unstable splits between daily limitations and social pressures.
