About the author (2000)

Founded in 1983, Complicite is a constantly evolving ensemble of performers and collaborators, now led by Artistic Director Simon McBurney. Complicite's work has ranged from entirely devised work to theatrical adaptations and revivals of classic texts. The Company has also worked in other media; a radio production of "Mnemonic "for BBC Radio 3, collaborations with John Berger on a radio adaptation of his novel "To The Wedding "for BBC Radio and "The Vertical Line", a multi-disciplinary installation performed in a disused tube station, commissioned by Artangel. Always changing and moving forward to incorporate new stimuli, the principles of the work have remained close to the original impulses: seeking what is most alive, integrating text, music, image and action to create surprising, disruptive theatre.

Torgny was born in Norsjo, Sweden. His works so far published in english include Bathsheba, Light and In Praise of Truth.
