The show is based on a play written for Teatr Nowy, which freely draws on the famous drama by Henrik Ibsen. In this very contemporary interpretation, Nora is a beautiful and rich young woman, who focuses on building her own image and achieving success. Her relations with people are superficial and limited to hundreds of pseudo-friends who she communicates with on Facebook. The artists compare Nora’s house — the title “doll’s house” — to the wild jungle of show business, inhabited by celebrities shining in the flashes of camera, fighting for media attention and their fans’ souls. What reflection of contemporary society will we see in this distorting pop-culture mirror?
