Carl Knif creates an innovative and physical interpretation of August Strindberg’s A Dream Play.
Deity Agnes undertakes a dreamlike journey through the world, encountering the different sides of humanity. She sees people and their lives as they are, full of contrasts and suffering, but also great beauty. Will Agnes be disappointed with humans, or will she be filled with love? How will she interpret the meaning of life and humans’ role on earth? Knif poses questions through strong physical expression and visuality. Music also plays a key role in the performance.
Premiere on the Amos stage 8.9.2021!

“Carl Knif impressed a few years ago on the same stage with his dance theater production of Kafka’s short novel Metamorphosis, and it quickly becomes clear that A Dream Play will not be a disappointment. In fact, the show is excellent, both entertaining and intellectual, visually rich and innovative.” HBL 9.9.2021
