Breath

Live music, dance and visuals intertwine to create wild forms and mythical images – infused by Beckett-inspired existentialism and absurd humour.

Two globally acclaimed Finnish artists, choreographer-dancer Tero Saarinen and accordionist Kimmo Pohjonen, take measure on each other on stage, composing a power web of sound and movement. Bessie-award winning wizard of stage and lighting design, Mikki Kunttu, will add his spell on the work.

Costumes are by fashion designer Teemu Muurimäki and sound design is by Pohjonen’s long-time collaborator Tuomas Norvio. Choreographer’s Assistant is Henrikki Heikkilä.

“Dance first. Think later. It's the natural order.”
- Samuel Beckett
