Olenko Olento (Am I A Creature) – Work for Dance Theatre Raatikko

,

Olenko Olento is a dance performance aimed at young people. Who am I apart from my hobbies and school grades? Who defines me: friends, family or myself? I’m tough but I’m fragile, strong yet weak, outsider and in the inner circle. The story revolves around three youngsters and their lives: Oona, Osku and Olivia. This contemporary dance piece is partly interactive.
