About Dance of Death

The Coronet is delighted to welcome back the National Theatre of Norway, last at The Coronet with their sold out Little Eyolf, with their new version of Strindberg’s savagely comic Dance of Death. Leading Norwegian director Marit Moum Aune directs film, stage and TV stars Jon Øigarden, Thorbjørn Harr and Pia Tjelta. Moum Aune’s productions of Ibsen’s Little Eyolf and The Lady From the Sea, which also starred Pia Tjelta, enjoyed huge success at the Coronet Theatre in 2018 and 2019. On a remote island off the coast of Sweden, Alice and Edgar are locked in a furiously dysfunctional marriage. As their 25th anniversary approaches they lurch between mutual derision and dependency, their sparring both harrowing and hilarious. And then Alice’s cousin Kurt arrives and finds himself in the middle of the couple’s vicious games. Strindberg is considered to be one of the founders of the modern prose play, often shocking society with his ideas and defiance of convention. This production of Dance of Death recently sold out in Oslo, and is being re-staged for their largest theatre before coming to London in its original intimate staging. Performed in Norwegian with English Surtitles Age Recommendation: 14+
