Lulu. Pandora's Box - a monster tragedy was a theatre production by The National Theatre, produced in 2013, and based on the play by Frank Wedekind.
Victoria Meirik directed it.
Mariann Hole won The Hedda Award 2014 in the best leading actress category for the role of Lulu.
The Hedda Jury gave the following reason:
"Some find that the best performances are dependent on what is called charisma. A better term is energy, the visible energy onstage. The performances of all the nominated for the best leading actress award are characterised by such energy, and the control of it.
The theatre mirrors society. Leading female roles are often about defining one's own identity in a world where men are way too willing to do it for you. To be an actor is also about being seen. The character is created by the actor, but can only be read in the glance of the audience.
This year's Hedda Award winner made just this play into art. Her character doesn't just act on her attractiveness, she acts on her consciousness of her role as desired. She creates an identity based on the glance of men and of the audience. She explores her freedom through insisting on it.
It is not herself she undresses. It is us, as she forces us to become conscious of our defining eye.
The best leading actress award of the year goes to Mariann Hole."
