Erica Wagner wrote a great article in The New Statesman on Ibsen’s life and work, to celebrate the Ibsen festival at the Barbican in London, and the publication of the new translations. Here is a pdf of the same article: Erica Wagner – New Statesman.

I am embarking on the Ibsen Ark! Off the east coast of Newfoundland, a group of committed theatre artists, actors and theatre students are spending three weeks immersing themselves in Ibsen. I am privileged to be able to go there to join forces with Juni Dahr, the great Norwegian Ibsen actress and her Visjoner Teater company, from September 9 to September 12. The event is organized by the English Theater at The National Arts Center in Ottawa, Canada, in collaboration with Fogo Island Arts Corporation. I am also looking forward to seeing the land where the Vikings landed back in the 11th century!
