Ibsen, Meet Halifax

LunaSea Theatre’s IBSEN BITES

Last night I  was swept through a tall and winding Wes Anderson-esque artist mansion to nosh on short and daring performance experiments. Curated by Halifax’s LunaSea Theatre and tour-guided by the beautiful Xara Choral Theatre, IBSEN BITES presents  half-a-dozen theatrical snippets inspired by legendary playwright Henrik Ibsen, as interpreted by six Haligonian artists/theatre companies.

The event is hosted by** the acclaimed feminists of  LunaSea Theatre, to
“show off some indie Halifax talent and let them explore Ibsen,” says co-founder Martha Irving. and The dichotomy between Ibsen – theatre’s “father of modern realism” – and the musical, immersive and contemporary interpretations of his work, is captivating.  (My witchy-side was quite partial to a heart-wrenching seance staged by oft-collaborators Kim Parkhill and GaRRy Williams.)

The location is TOP SECRET, and is revealed to you when you purchase tickets through Eventbrite: http://www.eventbrite.ca/e/ibsen-bites-tickets-13139690167

There are two shows today (Saturday), at 4pm & 9pm. Sunday is sold out!

**Correction; the show is NOT a fundraiser for LunaSea, but the funded BY them, with help from the province.
