As a film director, Bergman was also a choreographer. Throughout his films, and his theatre works, one could sense his refined choreographed language – in the beautiful movement of a head, or an arm, in the blink of an eyelid – Bergman’s “invisible hand”, constantly directing the actor in a slow dance around the room.

 

The renowned and innovative 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 Fårö and Bergman's poetic home Hammars, with the voice of the master himself - Ingmar Bergman - revealing his thoughts about movements and music.

 

Filmed on location in Bunge Aircraft Hangar, Ingmar Bergman’s home and outdoors in Fårö, Sweden.
