Further InformationPart of the Fri Figur festival. / Concert theatre. / This event builds on the myths about our national hero Peer Gynt, the same mythical material which is the foundation for Ibsen’s famous play, and the music is composed for the Norwegian national instrument the Hardanger fiddle. The audience meets Peer on the back of the buck in meeting with the mountain girls, hulder, the Bøyg and trolls. In 2011 the production, with the Norwegian title Inn i Peer Gynts rike, developed, and staged in an English-language version titled Into the Kingdom of Peer Gynt. / In Into the Kingdom of Peer Gynt the company Kulturproduksjoner plays with poetry, rhythm and sound, taking use of image displays and shadow plays during the process. Myths and song, music and images are narrative effects on equal footing in their story. / Into the Kingdom of Peer Gynt is second part of the concert theatre trilogy made by Kulturproduksjoner in collaboration with composer and musician Martine Lund Hoel. / The production was supported by The Cultural Rucksack in Hedmark, the county of Hedmark, The Fund for Performing Artists, plus the county of Møre og Romsdal through participation in the production workshop Prøvekluten. / / Press reviews: / - Andreas Hv. Berg, 07.06.2006, Hamar Arbeiderblad [Hamar]: / "Through the use of self-composed music and text based on the myths of the naughty, day-dreaming national hero, Martine Lund Hoel and Karen Høie managed turning the city hall to fairytale land when they had the world wide premiere of Into the Kingdom of Peer Gynt on Wednesday. The magical, powerful salvos from the Hardanger fiddle of Hoel were visualised through puppetry, shadow images and poetry. A multimedia joy and a combination spellbinding and lifting the experience of Peer Gynt the way the sisters of art expressions are supposed to enhance each other. National-romantic playfulness, songs and short poems worked perfectly together with video clips, shadow play and acting." / / - Hilde Berit Evensen, 08.06.2006, Hamar Dagblad [Hamar]: / "Two women onstage managed to conjure a raw, reckless and horny national hero in meeting with hulders and the Bøyg in the old city conference hall during the world wide premiere of Into the Kingdom of Peer Gynt. Martine Lund Hoel has a nerve bordering the magical in musical narration, Karen Høie has the power of the word and a clear body language." / / Length: 45 minutes. Production aimed at children and youths.
