About

In Ibsen’s footsteps – and the Peer Gynt Festival
As one of the founders of modernism in theatre, Henrik Ibsen is often referred to as ‘the father of realism’ and the second most influential playwright of all times – after Shakespeare, that is.

Henrik Ibsen travelled through Norway to collect myths and folktales in 1862, and the Gudbrandsdalen valley inspired him to write the play ‘Peer Gynt’.
Based on the notes he made and the articles he wrote, as well as literature written by the people he met on his way, you will be able to follow Ibsen’s inspirational journey day by day. 

Peer Gynt festival 31 July to 9 August 2020

Every year in the beginning of August you can experience the Peer Gynt play in a spectacular outdoor theatre setting by the Gålå lake. The performance is adapted to international guests, by English and German introductions, summary leaflets and audio guides.
You can also join concerts and exhibitions in this period. It’s worth spending one extra day in the area to participate in one of the may arrangements.
