Scenes from a Ferry by Alexander Ekman 2017

”We were seen as the perfect couple. No complications. Won’t you miss never to sleep with anyone but me? I am pregnant. What shall we do now? Do you want a divorce? I don’t know. I am totally confused.”

The internationally acclaimed Swedish choreographer Alexander Ekman creates 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 broadcasted all over the world and created debate and controversy as it, based on Bergman’s own experiences, in an unusually frank manner exposed psychological tensions in a marriage.

The performance has never been rehearsed. The dancers only got brief instructions and some codes to follow. Alexander Ekman dances together with dancers from the Royal Swedish Ballet.

The Swedish composer Mikael Karlsson has written most of the music in the flm and accompanies and improvises himself on a piano based on Ekman’s ideas and instructions.

Ingmar Bergman’s son Ingmar Bergman jr is executive producer, together with Marie-Louise Sid-Sylwander, rehearsal director at the Royal Swedish Ballet.

The installation was flmed during its first performance at the ‘Bergman Week’ festival in Fårö, Sweden.
