Nora dances her tarantella


Live English translation in my office.

Nora dances her tarantella is a place-, context and object-specific puppetfilm based on Ibsen's A Dolls House. It recycles the archives of the institution as well as theatre canons while commenting on art school architecture and political structures as capitalism and freedom.

The film was recorded in my tiny office at Norwegian Theatre Academy, for the occasion disguised as a black box, and with puppets from the archive. It has been shown as site-specifics in different versions. This version came 'home' and was performed in the office where it was made, as the third of four final presentations of the artistic research project Space Automatism.
