The root of life

Stage 4, Skellefteå

The story of Rönnog. About the happiness of being in love and the misfortune of being born a woman. About striving to feel justified, about passion, shame, prohibition and admonition - where resistance becomes the very core, the source of power; anger root of life.

"She is a natural disaster - scarcely covered with human skin"

The novel Lifsen's root, which Sara Lidman wrote about her mother, is nothing but an act of love - a reconciliation, but no beautification. We get to follow Rönnog through her upbringing as a mother and matriarch in a settler area in Västerbotten. She abandons the position as a dairy for married to the small farmer Isak Mårten Mårtensson. Love triumphs over the fear of poverty but; it has met a worthy opponent!
