This collaborative production of Peer Gynt combines traditional theater with new media arts, introducing a 21st-century audience to Ibsen's timeless play that questions—from a dizzying array of angles—the nature of the self. Directed by Kimberly Jannarone, professor of theater arts. Developed and produced by the UCSC Theater Arts Department and the Digital Arts and New Media Program. 


Director Kimberly Jannarone and her team of collaborators will invite you to move from one venue to the next to fully experience their multi-faceted presentation of Peer Gynt.*
