Vegard Vinge and Ida Müller won The Norwegian Critics' Award (theatre) 2007/2008 for their Ghosts.
In the speeches held by Elin Høyland and Therese Bjørneboe at the awards ceremony the following, among other things, was said:
Høyland: "It is a joy to see this year's award go to Vegard Vinge and Ida Müller for Ghosts. It is a joy that this production not just confirms that the A Doll's House revolution was far more than a lucky moment, but also that here we are witnessing an artistic integrity and a distinct aesthetic character, both of which are rare goods - in particular within the Norwegian theatre scene."
Bjørneboe: "Vegard Vinge and Ida Müller's Ibsen productions have been declared as off-off-off The Ibsen Festival productions. One may interpret this however one likes. I am not so sure that the Norwegian theatre institutions find their performance expression so strange - any longer. But on the other hand I would like to underline that Vinge and Müller have a lot to add to the field of so-called independent or alternative performing arts in Norway. Among other things because they contribute to increased interest for staging the classics, and working with text."
