Recensies en Artikelen

"Egil Törnqvist's contribution to the field of "Bergman studies" cannot possibly be overestimated. *The Serious Game*, alas, was to be his last book. However untimely, it is thus a fitting testament not only to Bergman's theatre work, but to Törnqvist's great capabilities of sharing his remarkable insights about it." - Jan Holmberg, CEO Ingmar Bergman Foundation, Stockholm "This is the strongest aspect of the book — Törnqvist’s ability of vivid description and thoughtful choice of evocative details of the production (he intently choose only productions he witnessed himself or these which are videodocumented, which allows him to provide, when necessary, detailed transcripts of stage action). The analytical chapters serve very well as particular arguments supporting the general characterization of Bergman’s view on theatre as shown in the preface." - David Drozd, *Theatralia: Journal for Theatre Studies*, 2019

The Serious Game

Ingmar Bergman as Stage Director

De onderstaande tekst is niet beschikbaar in het Nederlands en wordt in het Engels weergegeven.
Though Ingmar Bergman became famous as a filmmaker, his roots-and, to some extent, his heart-were in the theater. He directed more than one hundred plays in his career, and The Serious Game takes a close look at fourteen productions he staged at the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm. Looking closely at the relationship between the verbal and the visual, this book gives even longtime Bergman fans a new understanding of his sensitivity to nuance, his versatility, and his dedication to craftsmanship. **INCLUDES DVD WITH FOURTEEN VIDEO RECORDINGS, ALL IN COLOUR**
