Three plays by Henrik Ibsen in one evening. Grab your chance! In this binge-watch show you follow the lives of the inhabitants of a nineteenth-century Norwegian town in which three world-famous Ibsen dramas take place. With the necessary humour and acting pleasure, director Sarah Moeremans and her actors impale political indictments, pressing social issues, social inequality and other issues like a portion of fresh fish on their spears.
Run time 240 minutes
Between 2013 and 2018, Sarah Moeremans and writer Joachim Robbrecht added a new Crashtest Ibsen to their collection every season, making them the hit of many Oerols and theatres. In those plays they threw Hendrik Ibsen’s work at full throttle against the wall and extracted his best ideas form among the debris.
Time now to binge-watch the Crashtest of Crashtests. 'Crashtest Nora', 'Crashtest Popular Enemy' and 'Crashtest I See Ghosts' will be performed in one evening, played by a superb group of actors. Sit back and immerse yourself in theatre history. We will treat you to three exciting episodes and Norwegian delicacies.
Current artistic director Piet Menu about Crashtest Ibsen
'Learning Ibsen and having fun? It can be done. In this little marathon, you get a crash course in theatre history and are also held up quite a mirror: the position of women, whistleblowers, power, alternative facts ... Have we really become smarter now than 150 years ago?'
'It is always a pleasure to watch the group of very talented actors, who know how to handle Robbrecht's linguistic ingenuity. Who makes them say "No old cows out of the fjord", or in the case of a disputed emotion, "It feels very real to the stage character standing here."'
‘Crashtest Ibsen overturns a lot at once but gets away with it effortlessly.’
