Carl Knif Company & Svenska Teatern & Riksteatern: A Dream Play
Carl Knif's innovative and physical interpretation of August Strindberg’s classic, A Dream Play.
Carl Knif has created an innovative and physical interpretation of August Strindberg’s A Dream Play.
Deity Agnes undertakes a dreamlike journey through the world, encountering the different sides of humanity. She sees people and their lives as they are, full of contrasts and suffering, but also great beauty. Will Agnes be disappointed with humans, or will she be filled with love? How will she interpret the meaning of life and humans’ role on earth? Knif poses questions through strong physical expression and visuality. Music also plays a key role in the performance.
The performance is produced in collaboration between the Swedish Theatre in Helsinki, Riksteatern in Sweden, and Carl Knif Company.
