More about Ghosts

Ghosts by The Arctic Theatre won two awards during The Hedda Award 2007, and was nominated for a third.

Øyvind Osmo Eriksen won The Hedda Award in the best direction category, and Nora Furuholmen and Joakim Moe Røisland shared The Hedda Award in the category of best visual design.

The Hedda Jury gave the following reason for the award to Øyvind Osmo Eriksen:

"The spring of 2005 this year's winner graduated from the director study at The National Academy of Theatre, and the same spring his diploma assignment made a sensation - rightfully so. From 2005 he has proved that he has the ability to reach the pure young audience, while he has, towards the end of the Ibsen Year, interpreted one of Ibsen's most performed plays in a way that is intense, original and innovative, while being 100 percent true to Ibsen's text.

The award goes to Øyvind Osmo Eriksen for the direction of Henrik Ibsen's Ghosts at Hålogaland Theatre, the autumn of 2006."

The Hedda Jury gave the following reason for the award to Nora Furuholmen and Joakim Moe Røisland:

"The two winners' near minimalist stage image supports the intentions of the director, while making them clearer. A well-known drama is playing out in timeless surroundings with actors in stylised costumes: All that is not in dire need for the performance to advance has been taken off the stage, on which refined switches between light and shadows makes the stage design's fundamental element the very symbol of the drama it reveals as well as veils.

The winners of the year are Nora Furuholmen and Joakim Moe Røisland for stage design, costumes and lighting for Ghosts at Hålogaland Theatre."

In addition, Kristian Fr. Figenschow jr was nominated for The Hedda Award in the best leading actor category for the role of Pastor Manders.
