18 May REVIEW: Hedda Gabler, Aarhus Theatre
February 21, 2015 by Morten Hede
“In the recasting and the staging of Henrik Ibsen’s “Hedda Gabler” Anja Susa formed a frame around the character Hedda supported by references to both the Fall, The Last Supper and the Crucifixion, with threads in the present and roots in the past, with contact to the audience and respect for the naturalistic ‘fourth wall’”.
“Anja Susa’s staging is so – as expected – more modernist than classical.”
“Gradually, most of the story, and the stylistic staging feeds us constantly with new thoughts and ideas – the basis for interpretation, and Anja Susa gets in the way its “Hedda Gabler” to be much more inquisitive than narrative. She explores starring Hedda Gabler with the audience and not in front of the audience. “
