Space. What is space? Tiloja / Avaruuksia (Fin) is based on Georges Perec's book of the Espéces dʻespaces (1974). The dance piece is a humorous and imaginative dissertation on space in all its immediate manifestations. In the work, Perec’s texts meets poetic and subtle dance. Sometimes the text acts as a rhythm and element that determines movement, sometimes the expression brings the viewer into poetic landscapes of memories and dreams. There is movement, speech, video projection and a world of sound.

A sensing, experiencing, and present dancer acts as the interpreter of feelings for the countless people who have experienced cancer at close range in the Your Cancer in Me performance.
The choreographer has experienced cancer among his friends and family four times, and approaches the topic openly through his experiences. The solo dance performance by Ismo Dance Company processes cancer on an emotional level and is an artistic interpretation of the feelings caused by cancer.
Your Cancer in Me approaches the topic from the perspective of the spouse of a cancer patient. Despite the difficult topic, the performance brings hope to anyone who has experienced a form of cancer.
The strong bodily features of dance allow the viewers to relate to the experiences, share their sorrow, and process their complicated feelings.

It has been quite hectic times with Corona but there are things happening. I had a last site visit in Oulu this week and the premiere of Hylky will arrive in two and a half weeks. More posts regarding Hylky will follow soon! Home sweet home will be premiered after Hylky at OuDance festival. Its a multimedia performance by Oulu based collective with dancer/choreographer Milla Virtanen, media artist Leevi Lehtinen and sound artist Anssi Laiho. I will do my icing on top of the cake ;). At once in Helsinki by Carl Knif Company will be at the same festival, so its a double booking for me. Speaking of double bookings, Corona canceled Ismo Dance Company´s premiere Your cancer in me that was supposed to be in April. Its new premiere date is 22.9. and the performances will go on until 29th of September. At the very same time I will finish my scenography design in Rovaniemi. The premiere of Rimpparemmi: Tiloja ja Avaruuksia will be in early October. And then there is more...
Art in the time of corona! We will release a series of three video recordings of three Flow Productions' immersive works.
First up Flow Productions presents: The Secret Garden. We have released a video recording of TSG (2018) to be watched free online. Due to the nature of immersive performances this video recording is a selection of the performance, even if it is pretty extensive. Viewers of this recording will therefore be in the same situation as the live audience was in their time: not everybody sees everything but it is all dependent on choices. People who have experienced this work live will be taken back to the feelings and sensations they had, and any first-timer will also have plenty to enjoy in this video.
