The Master Builder

The Master Builder is a collaboratively devised experiment in imagining Ibsen's iconic play in the cinematic style of Alfred Hitchcock.

Loosely inspired by Hitchcock's masterpiece Vertigo, this sketch layers that film's characters of Scottie Ferguson and Madeleine Elster atop Ibsen's Halvard Solness and Hilda Wangel and uses live cinema techniques to explore the power struggle at the center of an obsessive relationship.
