Harvard University

On June 13 and 14, Toril Moi will give a lecture and a seminar for the Mellon School of Theater and Performance Research at Harvard University’s Summer School on “Theater and the Other Arts”.  The title of her lecture will be “Ibsen between theater and painting.” It will build on the investigation of painting in  Toril Moi, Henrik Ibsen and the Birth of Modernism (2006), and trace  the interaction between painting and theater in Ibsen’s oeuvre, and in 19th century theater in general. Why does the advent of modernism break the traditional connection between the two “sister arts”?
