Director Jan Mikulášek’s new production is based on the extensive work of Ingmar Bergman, the creator of ten films and more than 120 theatrical productions. In the original work Personas, Bergman's gloomy, profound and fateful characters encounter one another, creating new connections and meanings. In an indeterminate flat, eight actors play out condensed dramas as each new tenant brings a new story, interspersing faces, fates, stories and moods. The north wind is cruel.
