ABOUT

Kerstin Thorvall’s novel Det Mest Förbjudna (The Most Forbidden Thing) was published in Sweden in 1976.  Scandalous for its frank depictions of female sexuality, its highly personal content aroused moral panic, as it addressed a mother desiring independence, sleeping with younger men.

“My bed is wet and warm.  It smells of happiness, sweat and sex.  It smells of life.”

DIRECTOR’S NOTES

A tree smashes through the wall of an elegant, mirrored room.  A live percussion score pulsates underneath the rhythm of the woman’s words, with the performance culminating in a liberating, abandoned dance.
