Compañía Kaari & Roni Martin: Bergman – Cries and whispers

Contemporary dance|Events|Premiere

Compañía Kaari’s & Roni Martin’s work is based on Ingmar Bergman’s film Cries and whispers, in which the basic questions of life and death are drawn sharply against the limitations of life.

Imagination and reality, past and present, fold into a multi-layered weave in the house of life and death.

“All värk var borta. De människor som jag håller mest av i världen var hos mig. Jag kunde höra dem småprata runt omkring mig. Jag kände närvaron av deras kroppar, värmen av deras händer. Jag ville hålla fast ögonblicket och tänkte: Det här är ju i alla fall lycka. Jag kan inte önska någonting bättre.” -Agneta, in the film Cries and whispers by Ingmar Bergman

Compañía Kaari’s & Roni Martin’s work is based on Ingmar Bergman’s film Cries and whispers, in which the basic questions of life and death are drawn sharply against the limitations of life. For Bergman, the purpose of life is in life itself, and above all in its simplest human gesture – touch. In the group’s interpretation, the dance of life is accompanied by a harpsichord, the playing of which proceeds like the test of time, regardless of the person.
