Performance Tradition

The major theatre institutions and public broadcasters in Norway, together with significant twentieth-century theatrical families, and an array of government departments have maintained Et dukkehjem within global cultural markets for more than a century. They were the force behind the creation of a dominant tradition of performing the play. These graphics trace how this tradition was transmitted from production to production by participating artists.
