Inspired by Ingmar Bergman's 1966 psychological film, PERSONA, ANIMUS uses performance, multi-media projection, and live video captured onstage to explore the merging identities of two modern women, one who speaks and one who doesn't, who compare hands and "get all mixed up in one another." Focusing on themes of identity, shame and voyeurism, ANIMUS explores not only personal identity, but also online personas, blurring what is real and what is fake.

ANIMUS is created and performed by Emily Michaels King and Debra Berger of E/D and Amber Johnson of DangerVision Productions.

Additional Information:
ANIMUS is presented as part of the Ingmar Bergman Jubilee. The year 2018 marks 100 years since the birth of Ingmar Bergman: world-famous filmmaker, legendary theatre director and exceptional writer. The Jubilee, starting in Autumn 2017 and continuing throughout 2018, has taken place over the entire world, with theatrical performances, exhibitions, documentaries, film retrospectives, book releases and festivals.
