Hedda | Play

22 March 2024

Accessible only for Registered Users.

Hedda is a pluralistic portrait of women. Starting from the work by Henrik Ibsen, Aurore Fattier’s Hedda immerses us in the last days of Hedda Gabler’s rehearsals. Laure Stijn, a middle-aged director from a large family of artists, tackles the work of the Norwegian playwright. The increasingly disturbing memories of her sister, Esther, a young actress who died fifteen years earlier, punctuate the course of her work. It is this unexpected, dizzying path that we follow her on until her show comes to fruition. Bolstered by a renowned European cast, Aurore Fattier offers a theatrical and cinematic reinterpretation of this play from 1890. Hedda approaches this classic, which could be a contemporary work, and holds up a mirror that shows us the difference between the real violence that women endure and the way it is idealised in our cultural staples. In its world première, Hedda deconstructs overbearing male standards and asks the question: ‘What are our classics about?’
