De la danse contemporaine finlandaise à Luxembourg

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).

Vimmaa (Frenzy) On Tour in the Autumn 2013

Satu Tuomistos contemporary dance thunderstorm Vimmaa (Frenzy) will tour Finland and Sweden this autumn. The tour will start from Skellefteå, Sweden on 21/11/2013 and ends to Helsinki on 3/12-4/12/13. Check out the exact tour dates here!

”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.”
Eeva Kauppinen, Theatre&Dance magazine 6/2012
