“Peer Gynt” by Ibsen is a wild spectacle, with extreme, leading to explosion, to demonicity, states of the characters. A play about the search of a life path, about the meaning of life, about destiny’s choice, about the primordial struggle of the soul. Peer Gynt, all of his life, wants to be а hero, and wants to win, to be "an emperor with a thousand courtiers". Trollism is his philosophy, and it is related to the consumer's view of obtaining immediate satisfaction of all needs and desires, everything to happen here and now.
Adaptation – this is what excites the world nowadays.
Peer is a hero of modernity. In a certain way, he is like all those people who are moving around the world today, looking for prosperity and wanting to take their share of the wealth from the developed societies. Peer declares himself as a citizen of the world and wants to rule it.
In our global, highly material, hedonistic society, where conformism and the double standard have taken precedence over the spiritual, we, in our everyday life, meet others like Peer, trolls, mystics and manipulators.
At the end of his life, Peer Gynt must be held accountable for everything, which has been done.
Peer Gynt is the engine of the plot and the character’s actions. Two actors play the role, not only because of the formal biological changes, but also because of the semantic transformations of the personality.
We are trying to create a spectacle with a strong energy field and combine it with speech, plastic and mapping. Through mapping we not only create the vision of the performance, but also develop the narrative construction and enrich the dramatic meaning.
 Enjoy watching!
