Summary/Abstract: A review of the play John Gabriel Borkman by Ida Müller and Vegard Vinge. This performance, shown at the opening after the renovation of the Prater – the second stage at the Volksbühne – follows a two-week marathon of The Wild Duck, in the form of a shop-window diorama, staging Henrik Ibsen’s drama made by the duet. Irmer describes the play, and ultimately compares it with the Ibsen trilogy directed by Thomas Ostermeier, who set the action in the context of the contemporary middle-class bourgeoisie. Müller and Vinge’s play is, the author believes, more complex, because it attempts to grasp the bases of our Protestant-capitalist culture.
