Press coverage

Kari Gisholt, Varden:

"Henrik Ibsen - en dannelsesreise i Telemark* (Henrik Ibsen - an education journey in Telemark) has entered the boat Henrik Ibsen and races through the Telemark channel with this summer's most distinct theatre experience aboard. (…) Ibsen Theatre has stretched the bow to the point of bursting. It doesn't matter much if not all is as good. This is unique."

Anne Lise Surtevju, TA:

"Ibsen Theatre has thrown itself into deep waters with this ambitious production, but the theatre has reached the end with heads well above water, if not better still... All in all this has become a unique, brave happening spun around the poetry of Ibsen."

Andreas Wiese, Dagbladet:

"As such Ibsen Theatre's Dannelsesreise* (Education Journey) becomes more than a tourist project, a journey with ambitions, to give its audience experiences as well as challenges."
