DescriptionIn the Ibsen machine we meet characters from Ibsen's universe in unfamiliar ways. The main character is Oswald from Ghosts. His text is new, written by Sebastian Hartmann, translated by Øyvind Berg. (...) Oswald is on his way home from Paris to Norway in his Mercedes. He is so ill that he can not work anymore. Life passes in cabaret as he races north on autobahn. Hartmann and the ensemble has focused on, among others, the following areas of Ibsen's plays: The dead child, parent / child, family, faith, determination, freedom, work, truth and the question: Why do I live?

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."
