‘Ingmar Bergman through the Choreographer's eye’
Presented by Nordisk Drama & Dokumentär AB
As a film director, Ingmar Bergman was also a choreographer. Throughout his films one can sense his refined choreographed language. The renowned Swedish choreographers Alexander Ekman, Pär Isberg, Pontus Lidberg and Joakim Stephenson, with principal dancers from the Royal Swedish Ballet, interpret Ingmar Bergman through four unique dance performances reflecting on human relations and intense feelings – the unspoken word transformed into movements. The dances are linked together with images of the epic natural beauty of Farö and Bergman's poetic home Hammars, with the voice of the master himself – Ingmar Bergman – revealing his thoughts about movements and music.
