Scenes from a Marriage

In Emily Mann’s highly theatrical adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s popular 1974 film Scenes from a Marriage, an ensemble of virtuosic actors invite audiences into an intimate space to experience collectively the human dynamics of a relationship through all the stages of a life—from youth, to middle age to maturity. Van Hove’s interpretation illuminates the universal themes of love, identity and vulnerability that are at the heart of Bergman’s timeless film.
