Jatkumo (Continuum)

Continuum is a concert and dance performance. It explores the fundamental elements of rhythm, texture, movement and human connection, building on the concept of resonance as both a physical sensation and a metaphor for intercultural interaction, dialogue and collaboration. A dialogue is created between musicians and dancers from different backgrounds, investigating themes of identity, diversity, human connection, borders, struggle, perseverance and the search for common ground, striving for a state where the performers are taken over by the music and movement itself.
