Further Information26 Performances. / About Ibsen machine in the program booklet: "The show was commissioned on the occasion of Ibsen festival's 20th anniversary. Idea was that Sebastian Hartmann would create an Ibsen cavalcade., He responded with an Ibsen machine, thematically inspired by a variety of Henrik Ibsen's most famous pieces. / About the production on the website of the theatre: "This year’s International Ibsen Festival opens with a production that is thematically based on several of Ibsen’s contemporary dramas. In addition, Sebastian Hartmann has written a new script, translated by Øyvind Berg. The principal character is Osvald from Ghosts. Hartmann creates unexpected encounters between Ibsen’s characters, who lead separate lives. The scenographic playground is designed by Susanne Münzner — his regular set design partner. Together with Hartmann’s reconstruction of the scripts and Steve Binetti’s specially composed music, the physical construction forms the basis of the ensemble’s creative process."
