Multitude of Peer Gynts
Andreas Ari Dwianto’s work departs from imagining a game that someone spends playing in the isolation room. Departing from re-reading the end of Act 4 of Peer Gynt, when the main character is trapped in a madhouse, Ari focuses on a visible crack in the original script. That is, Ibsen’s decision to never clearly explains how Peer Gynt got out of the hospital. Ari mirrors the story of Peer Gynt in 19th century Egypt with the story of a migrant worker who is looking for his way back from Malaysia to Indonesia.
