The Art Nouveau Center in Norway 21.10.2013 – 08.11.2013
The play is a meeting between the audience and the different rooms and objects that occupy the Art Nouveau Center in Ålesund, Norway. The actress Ingrid Bakke takes the audience on a journey through the old pharmacy. Along the way they will encounter different characters who suffer from Art Nouveau-fever. The only thing that links these characters together is their love for the Art Nouveau objects. The play is about the beauty and esthetics of Art Nouveau, but also about what makes some people love it so much and what makes something beautiful.
Schools from around the county of Møre and Romsdal are the main audience, but the museum will also give the general public an opportunity to see this play in action and to experience Art Nouveau in a new light.
The Play is part of the Cultural Rucksack, a joint initiative of the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Education and Research in Norway. It’s collaboration between the Art Nouveau Center, Happy Monks production and The Cultural Rucksack in Møre and Romsdal.
Some of the objects included in the play, will also be digitized in the framework of Partage Plus.
