We had a super tight schedule to put up a premiere but thanks to the professional crew in Verkatehdas, Hämeenlinna, we were able to rehearse twice and perform the premiere as planned. I had a true challenge since I had no time to run the show by myself. Some of the cues were following specific sound effects and I can tell that it´s not an easy task after seeing two rehearsals and updating cues while learning what´s happening on the stage.. Olli Hietajärvi, the operator was the correct man for the job. He really nailed it and deserves an applause! The dancers were amazing of course and the things they have created with a plastic balls are a true jaw dropping experience.High recommendation!
Helsinki performances in Stoa 8.-14.12. and a quick visit to Lahti 13.12. More pictures will follow during Helsinki period.
