Enemies in the doll’s house
From an undetermined point in the future, Nora Helmer revisits the decisive moment in which her marriage with Torvald starts falling to pieces. It is also a fundamental moment for her country – not Norway and its crystalline fjords, but Brazil and its recurrent mudslides, submerged in enraged political speeches, oppressions in a variety of levels and hard-to-solve ethical conflicts.
“Inimigos na Casa de Bonecas” is a play inspired by the works “A Doll’s House” and “An Enemy of the People”. Ibsen’s texts serve as a starting point for the construction of the play, which emphasizes gender issues, corruption and the media omnipresence. The performance unites theater, dance, music and video, to recreate the characters impasses and their unstable splits between daily limitations and social pressures.
