DescriptionA performance with a Kurdish Theatre Group Company in Sulaymaniyah (سلێمانی) . / First night : 04.06.2013, then 5-6/06.2013 in Kurdistan/ Iraq , last night 29.03.2014 played in Vår Teater Stockholm/ Sweeden, / Made By Rezan Saleh In Zahir's version of A Doll's House there are fewer characters than in Ibsen's and they are all concerned with business and wealth. Nora, Helmer, Krogstad and Mrs Linde all want to be rich. The director has chosen to exclude Dr. Rank from the plot. The scenography is designed so that the house appears as a symbolic prison. The floor in the house is raised 20 cm and below the audience can see a red light, this to give the impression that the house is a hell for Nora. Zahir did not make major changes to the content of the play, but he showed a critical view of the materialistic attitudes of the characters. This is relevant in today's Kurdistan, where new shopping centers and other commercial offers open every day, while many experience a weakening of traditional values, cohesion and community
