Tero Saarinen‘s latest large-scale choreography examines our relationship with nature. The creation is set to Stonework (2015), Drifts (2016–17) and Water Atlas (2018) by composer Sebastian Fagerlund. The trilogy is combined with the spatial sound design of Tuomas Norvio, known for his imaginative work in electronic music.
The stage design centers on a dialog between an animated film installation by visual artist duo IC-98 and the lighting design by Minna Tiikkainen. This is the first time IC-98’s internationally praised work is seen in performing arts. The black and white video is based on material hand-drawn by pencil. Costume designer Teemu Muurimäki brings even more layers to the work as the dancers in a sense shed away their skin in an effort to unveil a new future.
Transit will have its Finnish Premiere at Helsinki Festival. Tero Saarinen Company’s 25th anniversary season will take place at the Cable Factory on 19–21 August, 2021.
NB! There is a limited audience capacity on sale for now due to restrictions in Helsinki. If the regulations ease, more tickets will be released later in the summer!
