Henrik Ibsen

Hedda Gabler

Director: Mateja Koležnik
Premiere: 6 February 2015, Old Hall

Ibsen's play Hedda Gabler was written in 1890 and was first put on stage in 1891. It is a play of several layers portraying many different characters. The main character is a woman called Hedda Gabler, who is disappointed with everything that is her world and all her being is concentrated on her own felling of unfulfillment. This is a play reduced to the sombre situation of a bourgeoisie lounge room as a place of bad, yet calculating decisions. It is one of Ibsen's last plays, which are characterised by pessimistic views, melancholia and eventually death.  Hedda is a woman of obscure past, chaotic presence and shackled future. Her marriage to Tesman is more a matter of decision than want. Nothing is as she would like it to be. It seems that the only idea which helped her to survive her inner split is this gap between the real her and the image that she has of herself as well as the awareness of the fact that she can stop it all with just one shot into her temple. 

Hedda is a very contemporary character with an emphasised individual streak and a strong desire of the freedom of one's own will. She is incapable of forming a relationship between her own individuality and social conventions, and opts for the most radical act of the free will. Her discontent is a general condition of the future of humanity. Hedda Gabler is aware of her condition, of the several bad decisions that brought her to feel so unfulfilled and all the mistakes she has made. Nevertheless, she knows that she is the one who chooses the way in which she will fight them.
