Ingun Bjørnsgaard's latest dance work is inspired by Ibsen's Hedda Gabler from1890, an iconographic drawing room drama about a destructive and "dissatisfied" woman who takes her own life. Hedda identifies with heroic masculinity and holds the ridiculous and vulgar in contempt. She is a fascinating tragic figure in confrontation and dialogue with the ambivalent yearning for passion and true drama of our times. Published on Thursday October 2nd, 2013
