De la danse contemporaine finlandaise à Luxembourg

Kommentit pois päältä artikkelissa De la danse contemporaine finlandaise à Luxembourg Blog

La danse contemporaine finlandaise sera à l’affiche de la prochaine soirée du 3 du TROIS à se tenir au Centre de création chorégraphique luxembourgeois TROIS C-L.

Organisé le trois de chaque mois, l’évènement Le 3 du TROIS donne l’occasion à des figures de la danse contemporaine de présenter au public les projets qu’elles ont en cours. Le collectif d’artistes réuni par Satu Tuomisto, qui outre elle-même comprend Mia Kivinen, Otso Lähdeoja, Salla-Maria Santos et Jukka Tarvainen, a profité de sa résidence à Luxembourg pour mettre au point un nouveau spectacle intitulé Sieto (titre français, Seuil de tolérance).

Kommentit pois päältä artikkelissa Looking for two dancers with high tolerance Blog

Mia Kivinen, Otso Lähdeoja and Satu Tuomisto are looking for two dancers. We work collectively so as well as appreciating kinetic talent we value teamworking skills. Strong squat and proficiency in making tasty pancakes is a plus.
The theme for the performance is tolerance.

We begin by working in residencies in Hammerfest 11.1.-27.1.2015 and in Luxemburg 15.2.-4.3.2015. The work aims to premiere during winter season 2015-16.

Audition on Mon 25.8.2014 at 10-14 in Helsinki.
Applications by Mon 18.8. to envoikestaa(at)gmail.com
Please include your CV and tell us where is the limit of your tolerance.

I can’t wait!

”Vimmaa (Frenzy) is a seductive and provocative performance. It is not rude or vulgar, even though some moments resemble sexual act. This directness surprises, but at the same time it is most natural and beautiful.”

Satu Tuomisto was part of the honorary jury judging the Black Horses at Air Guitar World Championships last night.

”There are a lot of similarities in Air guitars and dance. The best performances were the ones combining well physicality, performance skills, musicality and originality. It was such an honour to get to know this superbly crazy Finnish tradition!”
