About the performance

Virginia Woolf’s novel Orlando tells a story of a person who lives 400 years without getting old, occasionally alternating between women’s and men’s gender identities. The dance piece ”Towards Orlando” is inspired by Woolf’s story but does not move precisely with the plot of the story. It aims to notice the invisible doors of time, drawing the lines of infinity and stepping through them. It is unfinished travel on the edge of masculinity and femininity, unpolished physical retreat and meditation of dance which reaches out to the possibilities of being reborn. ”Towards Orlando” is about the trip of the dancer Ari Numminen travelling to meet his young self as a tiger boy and his long lasting past with a renaissance queen.
