A DOLL'S HOUSE
A New Adaptation by Alice Knapton & Venetia Twigg
based on HENRIK IBSEN'S classic tale
Directed by Alice Sillett
Choreographed by Amy Lawrence
Mr & Mrs Helmer are the iconic power couple. They excel at work, staying on top, socialising. They excel at excelling.
But as his autobiography rolls out around Christmas-time, it seems there are a few things that Mr. Helmer may not have mentioned in the foreword.
Working with some of the UK's leading Mental Health and Domestic Abuse charities, we use Verbatim interviews and emotive Choreography to rocket Ibsen's famous tale into a hugely relevant re-telling for modern audiences.
Exploring stigmas around gender expectations and mental health, this artful adaptation focuses on the impossible idolisation of one 'perfect' woman, by a man who walks with weights around his ankles.
"A Doll's House" showcases the play-writing collaboration of two of Theatrical Niche's founding members, as well as the direction of critically-acclaimed artist, Alice Sillett. This new production incorporates the words and intonations of mental abuse & mental health problem sufferers, giving Ibsen a resoundingly contemporary voice.
We again offer both free and bespoke workshops to accompany the piece, given that it is multidisciplinary, and Ibsen remains on many syllabuses. Question and answers sessions are also provided upon request, and free Verbatim workshops can be claimed by group bookings of 8+ where applicable (and in agreement with venues).
