A brutal, nightmarish Carmen imbues an old story with contemporary resonances

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

Choreographer Johan Inger’s Carmen is one we have never seen: a Carmen turned inside out. In this danced-through reimagining of the world’s most-popular opera, we are pulled into the characters’ inner turmoil. Their dancing gets under our skin, at times deliberately unsettling us.
