WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Have you ever wanted to walk out of your life? Responding to Ibsen's iconic character from A Doll's House, Nora and I explores the relationship between acting and autobiography as triggered by Nora's story. At the end of Ibsen's play, Nora controversially leaves the stage and her family to face an unknown future. Nora and I examines the spaces between playing a role and expressions of identity by the actress playing Nora and contemporary women of different generations. Referencing the play, its wildly varied production-history and the voices of local women, Marianne Sharp's production, opens a new door on Ibsen's classic.
