Ibsen from the inside

Get up close with Hedda Gabler and Juni Dahr’s Visjoner Teater – inside Hedda’s house.

One of the International Ibsen Festival’s most intimate stages is not a stage at all. As one of a lucky few, you can now be invited into Hedda Gabler’s parlour at Sæterhytten, Bygdøy, and experience Ibsen from inside Hedda’s house. You cannot be closer to the action than this.

Juni Dahr is the artistic director of the actor-based Visjoner Teater. Here she has developed a distinct artistic profile, unique in Norwegian theatre, with guest performances at international theatre festivals. Whether in Norway or abroad, the performances tend to take place at nontraditional venues.

Hedda Gabler at Sæterhytten was nominated to the Hedda Award 2011 for “outstanding artistic achievement”. The production visited the international Fadjr Festival in Iran in 2016, has been played at international festivals in Poland, Japan and Portugal, and was awarded the prize for best performance at the 2017 Almada International Theatre Festival in Portugal.

Sæterhytten, a part of the Bygdøy Royal Estate, adds a new dimension to Hedda Gabler. The environment and landscape are also a part of Hedda Gabler’s world, with the light of day slowly fading, the city at a distance, and the sky, trees and birds at Bygdøy.

The press says ...


  • “This is Hedda Gabler pure and true in a fitting setting: torn between the closed room and the freedom of nature.”


  • “With an audience of 40–50 closing in on the action, the atmosphere is exceptional. Henrik Ibsen is transplanted from the theatre into actual rooms. This provides a powerful and realistic grasp of the action in Ibsen’s inner drama…”


  • “This is probably the closest we will get to a complete Hedda Gabler.”
