Oulu Theater, grand stand
Wed 16th November at 19
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 imaginative sound design of Tuomas Norvio, known for his work in electronic music. Costumes are by fashion designer Teemu Muurimäki. Choreographer’s Assistant is Henrikki Heikkilä.
“In me there have always been two fools, among others, one asking nothing better than to stay where he is and the other imagining that life might be slightly less horrible a little further on.”
“Dance first. Think later. It’s the natural order.”
– Samuel Beckett
The visit will be produced in collaboration with the Oulu Theater.
