Excerpt from Fish

Client: Cinenic Film

Director: Åsa Johannisson
Producers: Cinenic Film Annika Hellström och Lis Svensson

Length: 10 minutes

Gerds only friend, a fish, dies. She decides to confront the world outside and sets off to buy a new fish. When she gets back home she realizes she has locked herself out of the apartment.

Fish is created exclusively for the circus artist Gry Lambertsen who plays the main character in the film. The story of a lonely woman with a pet is a theme we have explored together in several performances. The pet has transformed from the original frog into a fish but the loneliness is still the same.
