At the outer level, Peer Gynt is about dreams and ambitions meeting the 'real' world. Peer grows up in a small community where he fails to find his place, never becoming a part of society. This leads to him never to be taken seriously by the others.
At a deeper level, "Peer Gynt" is about spiritual dimensions connected to finding one's identity and one's place in a greater context, the search for a meaning and finally, the realisation of one self.
In Peer Gynt nr. 371, Peer was played by dancers Sittibancha Bampen, Nils Jakob Johannesen and Biniam Yhidego (also known as Biniam A. Gezai), with origins in Asia, Europe and Asia.
Peer Gynt no. 371 was produced by Øyvind Jørgensen Productions and Riksteateret, and was funded by The Cultural Rucksack, The Audio Visual Fund and The Fund for Performing Artists.

Marit Strømmen, Verdens Gang 30.09.2004:
"With the flexibility of the wild buck-ride the dancers from three continents jump playfully easy over Peer Gynt’s monopoly of Norwegian-ness."
Camilla Eeg, Dagbladet 01.10.2004:
"In the production no. 371 in the line of interpretation of (Peer) Gynt, Jørgensen scratches in the Norwegian identity. By presenting one character through three persons he focuses on the human being Peer as a many-faceted and hybrid individual."
