DescriptionTheatre-goers usually encounter Henrik Ibsen's works on stage in stripped-down versions. Depending on the cast and the directorial concept, they experience his plays filleted - certain strands from his textual organism are extracted and, in their abridgement, sharpened into a specific reading. We shine into the cave-like work of the poet with the small torch of our understanding and usually only go in a little way. The theatre of Vegard Vinge, Ida Müller and their team is the opposite of this process. Their performances of Ibsen's works resemble a slow motion of understanding. Instead of producing a line version of compact duration, their productions unfold the text in a marathon. Vinge / Müller's meditations on Ibsen's works pay attention to the smallest asides in his dialogues. Isolated sentences and words in the play are treated by the performers like lines from a poem, repeated over and over again in the performance until they speak for themselves. Every step of the characters on stage, every opening of a door is set to live music and the text does not sound from the characters' mouths but is played as a pre-produced sample. The extreme artificiality of this theatrical world surprisingly creates an encounter with something very real, because what is seen on stage is what it is and has the solid presence of concrete things, bodies, singing, piss, a digger, horse or wood.
