"I gave you my young, living soul. And that gift left me empty within."
The last Ibsen.
ITI presents a reimagining of When We Dead Awaken, the final play by acclaimed Norwegian dramatist, Henrik Ibsen.
Arnold and Maia Rubek are an emotionally distant married couple. On a resort vacation, Maia finds herself attracted to the energetic Ulfheim, while Arnold rekindles a relationship with an old muse, Irene.
Ibsen's final work is an introspective epilogue on art, loss, and finding final restitution once again.
Director Sankar Venkateswaran (artistic director, Theatre Roots & Wings; former artistic director, International Theatre Festival of Kerala) weaves the show together from speech and dance, letting the language of the body tell Ibsen's tale of reawakening.
