Oleg Palme and artists of Palme Theatre staged Hedda Gabler with respect to ideas which inspired Henrik Ibsen. We strove to examine the underlying causes behind human behavior and looked at the characters of the play as personified concentrations of ideas. Dealing with the conflict between a wish of self realization and expectations ascribed to the individual within the family circle, we explored its traumatic impact on the human soul.
Through dance, movement and elements of shadow theatre, our visually and emotionally rich show speaks directly to the minds and hearts of the public about destructive forces of Hedda’s unconscious mind. In contrast, this coexists with realistically performed characters, resolving their ambitions in their vocations, creativity and love towards others.
