THE LADY FROM THE SEA: THOMAS ZANON-LARCHER AND JULES WRIGHT. Black Dog Publishing Limited, London, 2013. 142 pp. with 127 ills. (116 col.). 25 x 17 cm. ISBN 9781908966636 In English.
Publisher's description: Inspired by Henrik Ibsen's The Lady from the Sea, which sits within the playwright's trilogy focusing on the theme of female self-realisation, renowned Italian photographer Thomas Zanon-Larcher and British theatre director Jules Wright continue their series of narratives realised in performance, film and photography with actors placed in environments external to the conventional set or stage. Indeed, here the context is sharpened powerfully by the chosen location. Taking as their lead the notion that both the play's protagonist Ellida, and her lover, originate from the far northern hemisphere, Zanon-Larcher and Wright set out beyond the Arctic Circle to work in the Polar Day, reaching as far north as IS-Fjord Radio -- the last radio communication location before the North Pole -- and Ny-Alusund -- the last departure point for the great solitary polar explorers. With such an approach, both director, photographer and actors establish the authenticity of solitude emphasised within the essence of Ibsen's characters and the kind of driven isolation that perpetuates the classical Norwegian constitution.
