The Lady from the Sea

Thomas Zanon-Larcher and Jules Wright

On show at Kronenboden, Schwedenstrasse 16, 13357 Berlin.

In an immersive film installation shot north of the Arctic Circle and inspired by Henrik Ibsen’s The Lady from the Sea, Ellida is played by Lianna Fowler, Doctor Wangel by Angus Wright and The Stranger by Patrick O’Brien. The work is photographed by Thomas Zanon-Larcher and directed by Jules Wright. The music is by Billy Cowie.

Shot in Svalbard in Barentsburg, Pyramiden, Isfjord Radio, Ny-Ålesund and Longyearbyen in the heart of an incomprehensible wilderness of inexpressible beauty, this modern re-telling of The Lady from the Sea captures a Bergman-like intensity. The environment shaped the performances, which were played out in the emptiness of the vast world these essentially lonely people choose to inhabit.

The work was first shown in London in 2013.

A book of the work is published by Black Dog and available to buy in our shop.
