Dancing with Bergman

Ek, Ekman, Inger

Centenary 1918-2018

Three Swedish choreographers and leading lights of modern ballet will be present for this tribute to the great Ingmar Bergman. Mats Ek, one of the most respected contemporary choreographers in the dance world, will once again delight us onstage with his partner Ana Laguna. Alexander Ekman and Johan Inger, lively personalities and phenomenally talented gures on the international choreography scene, will create pieces in which the theatrical approach to the body onstage conjures up incredibly powerful worlds.
