About the Project

The Gynt Project took place at the University of California, Santa Cruz, in 2012-13.  It had four interlocking parts:

Here Peer Gynt encountered the Bøyg.
–We will, too.

* A multi-space production of “Peer Gynt” in March 2013 at the Theater Arts Experimental Theater and the Digital Arts Resource Center.

* An international conference, “Peer Gynt in a Digital Age,” bringing together Ibsen scholars, designers, and experts on the Peer Gynt legends.

* An exhibition at the Eloise Pickard Smith Gallery, showcasing the design process, production dramaturgy, and stand-alone works drawn from the production.

* Field research in Norway.  A team of seven collaborators travel to the land of Gynt, gathering design ideas, folklore, and Ibsen research to bring home to the rest of the team.

** And we produced a stand-alone album of the music.
