THE LAST OPENING OF THE YEAR: IBSEN IN A HUNGARIAN-AMERICAN VERSION

Csiky Gergely Hungarian State Theatre in Timisoara ends the year with the opening of "Hedda Gabler", directed by the American Tom Dugdale on the classic play written by Henrik Ibsen. The heroine's tragic end asks questions about responsibility, loneliness and social conventions.

 

The sixths opening of the Hungarian Theatre in Timisoara reconfigures a classic text of the international playwriting, “Hedda Gabler” by Henrik Ibsen and it is scheduled on the 21st of December, 19:00 in the Studio Hall. Married with an intellectual who bores here, finding herself in the impossibility of breaking social conventions, Hedda digs in her own unhappiness and cannot give up the illusion she has created, thus preferring to give up her own life. Ibsen’s feminine characters long for freedom and want to tear apart the complex network of social appearance and obligations. Hedda Gabler cannot tolerate hypocrisy and conventions, but she is sinking in the society she despises.

The main part is played by Simó Emese, young actress who has recently been awarded the Pro Cultura Timisiensis Certitudini prize. The cast includes Molnár Bence, Szász Enikő, Aszalos Géza, Lőrincz Rita, Mátyás Zsolt Imre and Tar Mónika. The set that brings the action into contemporaneity was designed by Albert Alpár, and the costumes were created by Carmencita Brojboiu. The original music was composed by Cári Tibor, and the adaptation of the text was done the dramaturg Demeter Kata.

​Tom Dugdale directed six performances at the Hungarian State Theatre in Cluj-Napoca, Northern Theatre in Satu Mare and M Studio in Sfântu Gheorghe, collaborating only with Hungarian ensembles. He holds a Master’s Degree in Directing from the University of California San Diego, he was director Tompa Gábor’s student. In the US he has his own artistic company, THE TRIP, which makes experimental performances that emphasizes the individual talent of the actors. Currently he is Assistant Professor of Theater at The Ohio State University, USA.

The following performances of “Hedda Gabler” are on 22nd od December, 6th and 30th of January 2019. For further information and reservations please contact: ticket@tm-t.ro, 0356450606, 0752111803
