about

Music and sound design from the theatre adaptation of Igmar Bergman's film Persona, directed by Sam Barrett.

Taking inspiration from 1950s electroacoustic tape music, de Groot's score is a dark and immersive accompaniment for an existential modern horror classic.

Persona Synopsis
Elizabeth, a successful actress, mysteriously stops speaking one night during a performance. A plucky young nurse accompanies her to a beachside retreat to work through this strange crisis. The two women form a bond and enjoy an idyllic, quiet existence in which nurse Alma even confesses her deepest secrets to Elizabeth. The world they have built begins to crumble, as they both become aware of the intricate masks they wear. The seclusion forces the women to drop these masks and to confront the disturbing truth of what lies beneath them.
