“The Rain illustrates what filmed dance can say that staged dance cannot.” Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times, November 10, 2008
The Rain revolves around five characters and the intimate encounters among them. Mingling memory and desire, Pontus Lidberg crafts subtle narratives through a series of cross-cutting tableaus linked together through underlying patterns, movement, and the ever-present rain that touches them all.
