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. The duet is further enhanced by the innovative sound design of Tuomas Norvio, who is also known for his work in electronic music. Costumes are by fashion designer Teemu Muurimäki, whose sleek designs were also seen in Morphed. Choreographer’s Assistant is Henrikki Heikkilä.

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