Min(d)ing Ibsen. An Enemy of the People meets the People

A lecture-performance of “Min(d)ing Ibsen. An Enemy of the People meets the People” by its two directors and one of its  performer. A 2013 Ibsen Scholarship winning performance.

In “Min(d)ing Ibsen. An Enemy of the People meets the People” Ibsen’s masterpiece “An Enemy of the People” was used to shed light on the controversial issue of gold mining in Skouries, Greece. In the middle of an acute financial, social and humanitarian crisis, the project searched for what a citizen would sacrifice in order to survive or, in other words, what they considered fundamental in order to thrive. Classic form of realistic theatre blended with documentary theatre. The performers were both actors, caring out selected scenes from Ibsen’s text, as well as non-actors who contributed with their knowledge and experience on stage regarding the ambiguous mining in Chalkidiki. The performance was staged in the City Hall of Thessaloniki, arising controversy as to where theatre stage ends and where political stage begins.
