After a warm public response, Henrik Ibsen’s classic masterpiece “Nora: A Doll’s House”, returns at the Altera Pars Theater in translation and direction Petro Nakos. The iconic Nora, timeless symbol of the woman struggling to find herself among the multiple and often contradictory roles imposed on her, she comes from Saturday 4 November for the second year.
Petros Nakos re-establishes a “Doll’s House” so intimate and familiar today, almost a century and a half after its original foundation, that it makes you wonder if the world has – in fact – changed. And yet, since the time when the work was born, laws, society, everyday life and even people’s ideas have changed a lot.
But emotions? How much have our feelings changed a century and a half ago? The woman’s sense of duty to give selflessly and unconditionally herself in the family. The husband’s sense of ownership and control – protector against the female wife-lover. Female “insecurity” which often “justifies” the male tendency to protect and impose. How far-fetched and outdated are they for our modern society? The statistics of femicides unfortunately prove that toxic feelings about gender relations and family remain strong within us as if written into a gene that is passed down almost unchanged from generation to generation.
Nora and Torvald are in love, or so they think. But how real is a love loaded with the emotional burdens and performance of gender roles that have been grafted into the deep core of their psyche? How meaningful can a love be without respect and deep knowledge of the “other”? And how strong can the foundations of a “Doll’s House” built on lies, evasions and delusions be? Christmas Eve in the happy home of Torvald and Nora Helmer, who are going through the most carefree period of their lives. the holiday dinner. Joy, security and comfort. But it won’t take long for the first cracks to appear on the surface of their happiness, as blackmail, lies and love triangles shake the foundations of their home, leading to shocking conclusions for every relationship and time.
