What is it about Hedda Gabler that becomes dangerous for herself and everyone she surrounds herself with?
Hedda and Jørgen Tesman have just moved into their new home after a six-month honeymoon. Jørgen finally thinks he has succeeded in life - villa in the best part of the city, bright career prospects - and the legendary general daughter Hedda Gabler as a life partner. Who knows, maybe there will be children soon too?
Life also seems to have settled for Hedda. She has finally chosen the same life path as most others, and congratulations are pouring in from near and far. But inside, an ever-increasing chasm grows between the feelings and thoughts that the environment expects of her - and what she actually thinks and feels.
Hedda Gabler is one of Henrik Ibsen's most complex characters. About the existential drama, he himself wrote that «With Hedda, deep poetry lies at the bottom. But the surroundings scare her. Think of yourself as ridiculous. " Hedda Gabler has been interpreted and tried to be understood all over the world.
When director Fredrik Longva sets up the classic for the National Theater, he wants to find out who Hedda is: «What makes a person do the things Hedda does? What makes us humans destructive - towards ourselves and those around us? These are questions that we really should ask much more than we do. There I experience that the theater has a unique position in society. Because we can ask questions without necessarily having the answers ».
