Set in no particular time or space against a beautiful live score by Robert Davidson, The Lady from the Sea delves into the internal anguish, conflicts and confusion implicit in romantic relationships. A meditative and poetic adaptation of the original play by Henrik Ibsen, The Lady from the Sea observes the three main characters of a husband, wife and a stranger. The stranger, once engaged to the wife, has a compelling power over her and has returned to take her away. Her husband gives her the freedom to choose between staying with him and leaving with the stranger.
The Lady from the Sea harnesses the infinite possibilities offered by the modern stage, and is punctuated by stunning animation to create a moving space installation. This work is the result of a nine-month collaboration between two extraordinary collectives of artists, Abhinaya Theatre Company of Thiruvananthapuram, India and Brisbane-based Topology.
