This is a Doll’s House that shakes. It shatters and releases old spectres. Director Yngvild Aspeli wanted it that way. Because one day the shock of a bird at her window resonated within her. Because Henrik Ibsen’s play of the same name was placed in her hands, and her character, Nora, a wife and mother who wants to leave everything behind, bangs her head against the invisible glass surface of her own existence.
