The Hedda Award, 2008 Best direction

More about The Wild Duck

The Hedda Jury gave the following reason for the direction award to Anne-Karen Hytten:

"The winner of the year has long experience from Norwegian theatre, making her debut as a director almost 30 years ago. The winner also has written, processed, translated and dramatised theatre texts for children and adults. In this age of director's theatre - not to put that down! - this year's production is the best proof that classics can be renewed and reinterpreted entirely without spectacular outer effects: A director who with her heart and brain listens to the playwright, emphasises the original text and knows how to convey her insight to the actors. More than that it doesn't take.

The direction award of the year goes to Anne-Karen Hytten for her glowing, feminine new reading of Ibsen's The Wild Duck at Trøndelag Theatre the autumn of 2007."

Grethe Nordberg was nominated for The Hedda Award 2008 in the category of best leading actress for the role of Gina.
