You can experience Tero Saarinen and Kimmo Pohjonen’s acclaimed duet, Breath, in Dance House Helsinki in June! In this creation, which premiered in Canada in 2018, sound and movement merge as the two globally acclaimed take measure of each other on stage, composing a power web of sound and movement. The duet is further enhanced by Mikki Kunttu’s stage and lighting design, fashion designer Teemu Muurimäki’s costumes and Tuomas Norvio’s imaginative sound design.
“Ultimately, to me, Breath is about the importance of communication and acceptance. How we try to shield
ourselves and our privacy in the most absurd and comical ways, while longing for new experiences and
encounters with other people” Tero Saarinen tells.
After the performance on Friday 7 June, we will hold a discussion in the Erkko Hall. Saturday 8 June will mark a
special birthday performance, as we will celebrate the performers’ birthdays and raise a glass for Tero and
Kimmo in Dance House’s bar.
