An Enemy of the People
Despite the stupendous technological advances of recent years, this text by Ibsen shows us how we are still dealing with socio-economic problems incredibly similar to those of the industrial revolution. “Happily the theory that culture demoralizes is only an old falsehood that our forefathers believed in and we have inherited. No, it is ignorance, poverty, ugly conditions of life…” By transitioning the protagonist, we bring an intersectional and contemporary perspective to the play’s narrative, which addresses gender and sexuality in the context of governmental and socio-economic (abuse of) power. Ibsen doesn’t give us a prepared answer, he poses stimulating questions that polarization tends to obfuscate. Embark on this journey through time, which takes us to a strangely familiar place.
