A revelatory journey into the psyches of Ingmar Bergman’s characters

Tony Award-winning director Ivo van Hove and the Internationaal Theater Amsterdam re-imagine for the stage two psychological masterpieces by the late Swedish film auteur Ingmar Bergman. Featuring some of the Netherlands’ top acting talent, van Hove’s adaptation of the groundbreaking Persona and lesser-known After the Rehearsal is a love letter to theatre, in which a famous actress and director grapple with the consequences of allowing the rules of the art form to spill into their lives offstage. After the Rehearsal/Persona tackles the perils of falsity and the nature of the creative impulse with spectacular stage effects, the textures of cinema and all the visceral immediacy of the theatre.
