A transdisciplinary theatre labyrinth featuring excerpts from Henrik Ibsen's dramatic works by No Fourth Wall

Premiere October 15 2015
October 16 | 17 | 18 2015


Ipsagon is a labyrinth and an experiment. Ipsagon investigates the capacity of every individual to form a community of bodies and ideals together with others. Spectators have the choice to observe the process of adaptation from the outside, or to experience it first-hand through film, philosophical dialogue, playing, acting, listening, eating, and mixing it up themselves. They have the choice to fight for freedom – with or against each other. At Ipsagon there’s only you, me, and somebody observing us, deciding to build or to reject a community of misfits.
How great is our individual capacity to subordinate ourselves to the traditional order? Can a social architecture succeed in integrating any individual? Every room in the labyrinth asks both questions: Who is a legitimate misfit? And: Do you fit in?
