below is a list of Baltaskar Kormakur's plays - click on a Play Title for more information
On one level, it is easy to see that Baltasar Kormakur's National Theatre of Iceland production is principally a devised work. a mental-hospital scene, a cabal of blood-smeared plutocrats throwing handfuls of money into the air, a bunch of sunglassed thugs in black. . . These are ploys redolent of all too many productions that have no firm idea what they want to say but are determined to say it graphically. The first main difference is that in this case the company does have something to say: it has Ibsen's fantastical, notoriously unstageable five-hour verse play, in which protagonist Peer is at every moment torn between trying to be an individual and trying to be a human being. The second difference is that it works.
