Description of the performance

BODY is the last part of Susanna Leinonen’s dance trilogy depicting embodiment. Leinonen’s earlier works Nasty and Toxic dealt with the body as an object of constant control and criticism, while BODY delves into the body in a simplified way: what the body experiences during its life cycle and what a stunningly fine and adaptive mechanism it is without external modification or pressure.

In BODY, tightly packed physical movement challenges the strength of the body and the sensitivity of the mind, and it challenges the dancers to the extreme.

As the name suggests, BODY’s themes are physical and embodimentary. My body, which has been wrapped around dance since childhood, has given and taken a lot over the years. Being a woman, my body has also come under severe outside scrutiny. Every change in my body has inevitably affected my mental movements – and vice versa. Thanks to the strong union of body and mind, the connection between them cannot be ruled out. It can be momentarily lost, but never completely lost.
