The Hedda Award 2016

Special artistic achievement

Winners

  • The National Sami Theatre

    The Sami National Theatre Beaivvás for Vidas Extremas by Sigbjørn Skåden, Veronica Salinas, Rosa Chávez and Angel "Kame" Canas Ambrosio, directed by Jon Tombre:

    "It has been claimed that theatre as an art can only blossom truly when society around it is disrupting, and a lot is at stake. Naturally, at home we rarely see this claim confirmed. But this year we have experienced it, in a sensation of a performance in which a disturbing political reality is presented through dance, poetry, music and theatre by performers who have been personally touched by it. The magic that arises when a personal, deeply felt political involvement is conveyed with superior sense of style and artistic precision - that is theatre for real."

      "Throughout her career in Norwegian theatre, this year's winner has performed a large number of large and challenging assignments. Intellectually, emotionally and technically she has shown openness to the different genres' different qualities. The role she now receives the award for is one that she has, to a large degree, taken part in forming.In it she excels in a linguistically conscious, musical performance. She balances the universal and the characteristic, the timeless and the futurist. She shows curiosity, wonder and respect for her character, who is an androgynous everyman in a transition phase between organic life and virtual life."

    Winners

    • Per Schaanning

      Per Schaanning for the role of Karl in The Drunks by Ivan Vyrypajev, directed by Sigrid Strøm Reibo, The Norwegian Theatre:

      "This year's winner is an actor who in many contexts has proven his ability to maintain the tiny little details in which mimicry and body language may be more important than the spoken lines. The form and the content of this year's production may tempt one into overacting, but this year's supporting actor chooses to go in the opposite direction, and through underacting the over-the-top and unlikely, while being appropriately discreetly in place, he conveys the absurd situations in an everyday manner, yet with great understanding and credibility."

      Tore Vagn Lid for Our Power/Our Glory by Nordahl Grieg, Tore Vagn Lid and Cecilie Løveid, The National Stage:

      "This year's direction winner is a balance artist, with the ability to combine stylistic effects and formal elements from different planes of action and time epochs in one collective, coherent and complex expression, rich in information.He has proven a strong will to discuss complicated, many-sided issues in his production, and he does this again this year. This year's winner likes to call himself an auteur, and the term is apt. His theatre has character of gesamtkunstwerk, with a very conscious relationship to the source material as well as to the effects to express it through."

    • Olav Ryland Myrtvedt

      Olav Myrtvedt for his stage design and costume design for Our Power/Our Glory by Nordahl Grieg, Tore Vagn Lid and Cecilie Løveid, directed by Tore Vagn Lid, The National Stage:

      "This year's best stage design/costume design not only excels in taking use of the full stage area, but also the auditorium, so that the room for action is expanded significantly, and the separation between the stage and the auditorium is dissolved. The audience, and not least its place in the auditorium, becomes an important element to the understanding and the experience. Through the use of large image projections in addition to costumes that are thoroughly appropriate for its time, this year's winner provides us with the image of an image, or, as the theatre calls it; a development or theatre as work in the dark room."

    • Solaris corrected

      Solaris corrected by Øyvind Rimbereid, directed by Peer Perez Øian, The Norwegian Theatre:

      "The production of the year is an extraordinarily successful and coherent Gesamtkunstwerk, of rare artistic quality. Here, a strange, sombre and scary reality is described with a warmth and understanding that invites intimacy, understanding and mournful empathy. Based on a linguistically very complex poetic masterpiece, the production is also a piece of art in theatrical dissipation and bringing a text to life. It leaves us with a new, optimistic perspective on linguistic communication and the range we are able to understand."

    Winners

    • The Summer Dad Turned Gay

      The Summer Dad Turned Gay by Endre Lund Eriksen, directed by Petter Næss, Hålogaland Theatre:

      "This year's best production for children and youth is at one and the same time a humorous, absurd, burlesque, sensible, warm and slightly embarrassing story about the difficult puberty. In addition, it is liberatingly disarming about themes that are still taboo, such as sexuality, divorce issues and homophobia. One rarely sees a production in which everything is told from the youth's perspective, direct, undisguised, playful and in an unusually rich language without seeming affected. This was real."

    • Sjur Miljeteig

      Sjur Miljeteig for the music for Solaris corrected by Øyvind Rimbereid, directed by Peer Perez Øian, The Norwegian Theatre:

      "The auditive and the visual can be said to be the two elements furthest from each other in a theatre production. This year's winner receives the award for a sound image uniting the two, indeed through creating visual images through the auditive. His futurist sound image creates tangible as well as abstract spaces onstage, spaces the actor can interact with and act on. Thus the music and the sound effects become, like the winner himself, an important fellow performer onstage."
