Goksøyr & Martens were nominated for The Norwegian Ibsen Award 2020 for their play Dottera* (The Daughter). Dottera had its world premiere at The Norwegian Theatre in 2019.

The Norwegian Ibsen Award's jury gave the following description of the play:

"As an attractive, theatrical script, Dottera provides a credible presentation of daily life. Through a simultaneous, precise and thoroughly developed form, Goksøyr & Martens points at challenges in modern family life with your children, my children and our children. The retrospective style is combined with a contemporary expression, where things happen in parallel, and outside the control of the characters. Goksøyr & Martens' staged oeuvre has a strong literary dimension. Dottera is a drama that lets a secret gradually unfold. This structure, with a clear switch of focus midway into the text, creates a parallelism similar to life."
