A musical story inspired by the life and work of the poet Emily Dickinson.

Kajsa Reicke is a Swedish actor, educator and visual artist. She has been on stage since 1979 and also ran “Tantteatern” in Umeå, together with her colleague Karin Larson. Image and text have followed her through life in both art exhibitions and performances.

Now she has made a deep dive into the life of the American poet Emily Dickinson. The result is a fine-tuned storytelling performance and a tribute to a wayward poet with a voice all her own. Everything is structured as a kind of conversation between her and the poet - framed by Carlos de Rada Moniz's newly written music.

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) is one of America's greatest and most original poets of all time. She was a keen observer, experimenting with expression and challenging the existing definitions of both poetry and the poet's work. She lived a reclusive life and received much greater recognition for her poetry after her death. Finally we will get to know more about her.

The poems used in their entirety in the performance have been translated by Ann Jäderlund.

Performance in Swedish.
