Peer Gynt: A Geography of Lies – Music Visualisation
The visualisation Peer Gynt: A Geography of Lies was created as an adventure through Ibsens rich text.
“They are less interested in illustrating the content of the text or simply fulfilling the expectations of the music but ar instead more curious to explore these worlds by creating associations.
The themes of excessive individualism versus communal social responsibility make clear just how contemporary this work still remains. Perharps, after each audience member makes his or her own journey through the music and images they might be inspired to return to the original Peer Gynt to rediscover where their roads may have met,” Alexander Polzin
