THE TOUCH SCREENING AT TELLURIDE
Ingmar Bergman was courted by Hollywood for years, but when he finally made his first English-language film in 1971, the reviews were tepid.
In retrospect THE TOUCH is a classic.
Bergman called it his first real love story and Geoff Andrew's review makes one wonder if the right time, this pandemic moment, has arrived to reconsider the film:
"THE TOUCH ends on an image of solitude, indecision, immobility - but also of fredom and openendedness. A pause before an unknown future, a moment of truth and self-awareness. A glimmer, then, of hope."
After former collaborations with Mikael Karlsson we are happy to continue working with him, as well as Canadian librettist Royce Vavrek. Fanny and Alexander is a new opera to be written in English by Mikael and Royce, in creative collaboration with Cinematograph AB.
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.
