At Barske Glæder Produksjoners homepage it says about Ariel:

Who can cope with a wonder? Who can stand watching others’ freedom?

Tonight he watched me, or he watched her for a long time while he thought I was sleeping. I didn’t want to move. Wondering what he wanted. He has never been present at night, even less than at day. Never watched me like that, not like that.

Are the woman and the man ideal counterparts, created to see one another? Or are the expectations so great and so different they are doomed to hurt each other?

Ariel by Barske Glæder Productions was supported by Arts Council Norway.
