The internationally acclaimed Swedish choreographer Alexander Ekman creates an experimental and improvised choreographic installation with movements and a dialogue based on Ingmar Bergman’s praised TV series from 1973, Scenes From a Marriage. The TV series was broadcast all over the world and created debate and controversy as it exposed in an unusually frank manner, based on Bergman’s own experiences, psychological tensions in a marriage.
In this recorded unrehearsed performance, the dancers only received brief instructions and some codes to follow. Alexander Ekman dances together with dancers from the Royal Swedish Ballet. The Swedish composer Mikael Karlsson wrote most of the music in the film and improvised on a piano based on Ekman’s ideas and instructions. Ingmar Bergman’s son Ingmar Bergman Jr served as executive producer, together with Marie-Louise Sid-Sylwander, rehearsal director at the Royal Swedish Ballet.
The installation was filmed during its first performance at the ‘Bergman Week’ festival in Fårö, Sweden.
