Judgement Day archiveA new version of Ibsen's When We Dead Awaken. Written and first performed in 1899, When We Dead Awaken is one of Ibsen s most extraordinary and deeply personal works, last shown in London in 1994. Set within a mythical Nordic landscape Judgement Day offers an explicit and merciless self-portrait of Ibsen as an aging artist: restless with his art, his homeland and his married life. Its central character, the sculptor Rubek, exhibits all the extraordinary passion and fantastical drive that was an essential part of Ibsen s own creative character. Whilst holidaying with his young wife, Rubek encounters his muse: a woman that he loved and left a lifetime ago. What follows is a heartfelt examination of how Rubek has used these two. Over a series of heated encounters, the entire scroll of Rubek s life is unrolled in Ibsen s final - and most autobiographical - exploration of what it means to love and to be loved. A study in the destructive power of the creative impulse, Judgement Day examines some of the strangest and most mysterious areas of human behaviour.
Performers Philip Corriea, Penny Downie, Andrew Hanratty, Michael Pennington, Sara Vickers, Peter Symonds.
