Meeting Place

How can we recreate ourselves when the contexts by which we have previously defined ourselves are gone?

Inspired by the films of Ingmar Bergman and the Fårö landscape, this art project was presented at the Bergman week 2017 as a dance performance, where Joakim Stephenson choreographed an ensemble of local dancers, principal dancers from the Royal Swedish Ballet in Stockholm and refugees, in the process of creating a new life on Fårö Island after fleeing their home countries. It is a dynamic, revealing and honest performance about human growth through meetings that matter.
