Description "Carl Knif crea­tes an in­no­va­ti­ve and phy­si­cal in­terp­re­ta­tion of Au­gust St­rind­berg’s A Dream Play (Ett drömspel).

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. "
