    "Everything Represents, Nothing Is": Some Relations Between Ingmar Bergman's Films and Theatre Productions

    by Maaret Koskinen

    Abstract: All through his long career, Ingmar Bergman has worked alternatively in the film and the theatre. There is therefore good reason to believe that this exchange has worked in mutually beneficial ways. This paper argues that if Bergman's films are regarded in the light of his work in theatre, it is possible to extract new insights from such aspects in them that hitherto have been discussed exclusively in cinematic terms; and conversely, that new insights may be extracted from certain formal and stylistic aspects of his work in the theatre when regarding them in the light of his films.

    Résumé: Étant donné que, pendant toute sa carrière, Ingmar Bergman a travaillé á la fois au théâtre et au cinéma, il est plus probable que ces deux pratiques se soient réciproquement influencées de façon bénéfique. Cet article démontre que, si l'on examine les films de Bergman á la lumière de ses oeuvres théâtrales, certaines interprétations qui échappent á l'analyse strictement cinématographique deviennent possibles. De la même façon, certains aspects formels et stylistiques de son corpus dramatique et théâtral peuvent être mieux compris si l'on étudie la filmographie du cinéaste.
