About Skien International Ibsen Conference

Skien International Ibsen Conference is a biennial conference that addresses Ibsen, theatre and political relevance.

Previous conference discussions have elaborated issues like "Theatre between literature and research" and "How are classical dramas used to comment on contemporary societies and settings?" and "Who are the public enemies of today?"

18th and19th of October 2017 our 9th conference will be held at Teater Ibsen. We are still focusing on Ibsen, theatre and political relevance and the programing for 2017 is well in progress. Artistic collaborations, guest performances, speakers and presentations of Ibsen Scholarship winners are important parts of the program.
