What if ‘living for your art’ gets in the way of real life? Scarlet Tummers, Carly Wijs and Eurudike De Beul perform Herfstsonate (Autumn Sonata): a conversation between a mother and daughter, a search for recognition and love.

Two actors and a singer take on Autumn Sonata, a 1978 gem of European film history by the legendary filmmaker Ingmar Bergman. 

The trio dives into the depths of the mother-daughter relationship, searching for its core: how are we shaped? Which injuries sometimes occur in the process? And what does it take for us to become autonomous? At times, their personal relationships shine through: Carly and Eurudike were once Scarlet’s teachers at drama school and have shaped her into the actor she is today.

How far do artists take their dedication to their art, and what can – or has to – take the backseat in return? A search for the depiction of the true self, to the dulcet tones of the sonata.
