Gisken Armand won The Hedda Award 2013 in the best leading actress category for the role of I in I disappear.

The Hedda jury gave the following reason:

"The actress alone on stage, without props or stage design as support, must trust herself and the word. The award winner of the year has throughout her career - including everything from drama to comedy, musicals and theatre for children - again and again proven how nuanced and precise she masters the word, whether we talk about modern slang, ancient poetry lines or comedy's sky-high demands for precision. In this year's production she presents a character without a clearly defined identity, in an undefined reality in continuous change. With her nuanced treatment of the text she is the fundamental element of the performance. This year's best leading actress award goes to Gisken Armand."

Arne Lygre won The Norwegian Ibsen Award AKA The Ibsen Prize 2013 for I disappear.

The jury gave the following reason:

"I disappear by Arne Lygre moves through a dark landscape with a female I, her girlfriend, daughter and husband. The world described is uncertain bordering the threatening. The woman is caught in a life situation, an existential crisis, she is reflecting upon. Arne Lygre uses different narrative perspectives in his examination of our time's constant staging of one's own identity. The form mirrors the content in an elegant, suggestive and intellectual way. The text is open as well as mysterious with many changing landscapes. With I disappear Arne Lygre ensures his position as one of our most interesting playwrights."
