By Henrik Ibsen

Directed by Baltasar KormŠkur

Radical, contemporary and exploding with energy, KormŠkur's breathtaking adaptation of Ibsenís classic text tells the story of a man who is given a chance to review his life. Featuring actors from Vesturportís hit Woyzeck (bite05 & 06), the show resounds with relevance for modern day audiences. 

Visually and emotionally captivating, scenes of ecstasy contrast with moments of beautiful tenderness. With an astounding setting that constantly transforms, Peerís passage through life forges a wild journey through time, but it is a life filled with missed moments and wasted opportunities. We are forced to ask ourselves: what is a life well-lived?
