Henrik Ibsen / Guillemette Laurent

  • Duration: 1h30
  • Location : Salle de la Grande Main

It’s the craziest thing I’ve written,’ confessed Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen, who wrote the story of a young man named Peer Gynt, who is unsuited to everything around him, in 1867. The ‘anti-hero’, who is a thug, liar, drunk and opportunist, is banished from his community.

He then leaves to take on the great big world, fails in all his endeavours and invents stories to disguise the reality he is escaping from. With acting coaching by Catherine Salée and Yoann Blanc in the title role, Guillemette Laurent stages the epic of Peer Gynt, with a huge number of characters crossing his path, all played by volunteers from Liège who want to go on the adventure. The trio demonstrates how theatre and identity are made and arise from otherness.
