From one day to the next, Elisabeth Vogler falls silent. In the seclusion of a beach house, nurse Alma takes care of her and tries everything to make her speak again. Ingmar Bergman's film is an enigmatic psychogram about two women whose obsessive relationship causes the edges of their personalities to crumble. In their adaptation, composer Anda Kryeziu and director Caterina Cianfarini explore the limits of what can be said and the nature of human identity. Using live-electronics and sound alteration, the composition explores processes of perception as well as the relationship between body, technology and voice.
