"I watch a lot of film and theater. And look at a lot of art. But what's important to me most is reading the newspaper, watching my children, watching animals move in the park, watching the traffic - things that are not meant to be seen. Social staging, as such, is very rich". Mats Ek

When Johan Inger from Sweden was commissioned by the CND to
arrange a new version of Carmen, a work of a markedly Spanish character, he saw himself up against a huge challenge but also a great opportunity. His approach to this universal myth would have to bring on something new. To this end, Inger decided to focus on the issue of violence, approaching it with a pure, uncontaminated view... that of a child. Based on this viewpoint, Inger creates a character who prompts us into watching everything happening before us through innocent eyes, while at the same time we witness the transformation of that bystander.
