“There are only three things necessary for a performance to work: the play – words – the actors and the audience. You don’t need anything else for the miracle to happen.”  
-Ingmar Bergman, After the Rehearsal

"Together we have danced every imaginable turn: suffering, tenderness, passion, foolishness, betrayal, anger, comedy, tedium, love, lies, joy, jealousies, adultery, overstepping boundaries, good faith. And here are even more: tears, eroticism, mere eroticism, disasters, triumphs, troubles, abuse, fights, anxiety, pining, eggs, sperm, bleeding, departure, panties. Here are even more – best to finish before the rails run out – impotence, lechery, terror, the proximity of death, death itself, black nights, sleepless nights, white nights, music, breakfast, breasts, lips, pictures. Turn towards the camera and behold another jumble of images: skin, dog, rituals, roast duck, whale steak, bad oysters, cheating and fiddling, rapes, fine clothes, jewellery, touches, kisses, shoulders, hips, strange lights, streets, towns, rivals, seducers, hairs in the comb, long letters, explanations, all that laughter, ageing, aches, spectacles, hands, hands, hands. Now the aria comes to a close: shadows, gentleness, I will help you, the shoreline, the sea. Now all is quiet. My father’s old gold watch with its cracked glass ticks away on its stand on my desk. It says seven minutes to twelve."
- Ingmar Bergman, Laterna Magica 

After Scènes de la vie conjugale (Scenes from a Marriage) and Après la répétition (After the Rehearsal) in 2013, STAN once again turns its attention to Ingmar Bergman’s oeuvre. The desire to delve more deeply into Bergman’s work is shared by actor Robby Cleiren, who has previously been involved in STAN productions, including Betrayal, The Monkey Trial and The Cherry Orchard. His company, de Roovers, is coproducing this new play. For the first time they are working with Ruth Becquart, best known in recent years for her television work.  

Infidèles is based on the eponymous script from 1996 and Bergman's autobiography 'Laterna Magica' published in 1987. In ‘Infidèles’ Bergman himself goes into dialogue with his characters and the first-person narrator is incorporated in the piece. This exploration of the autobiographical dimension of his work is not reduced to voyeurism, confession or psychologization, but shows how subtly and ruthlessly Bergman exposed human relationships. 

The uninhibited theatrical reading will throw into relief the discernment and humanity, the vitality and humour of Bergman’s oeuvre. The piece will be an unaffected tribute, a declaration of love, a gesture of respect and admiration, but one that avoids idolatry.

Infidèles in Théâtre Garonne: do not throw stones at the adultrous woman
"With a mise-en-scene centered on the bodies, the movements and the light, with minima, with this simplicity, this correctness of the tone, this respectful mise en abyme of the words of Bergman which are its hallmark, the flemish collective, while always giving us the feeling that the play is being created before our eyes, tells in a unique way this banal tragedy of ordinary life. And we, we still love it so much. "
Nicole Clodi, La Dépêche du Midi, May 8th 2018
