It´s Eastern and we are performing last shows for Anna Karenina in Suvilahti, Helsinki.Great reviews in the media and on top lots of loving feedback from the audience. Five shows remaining and we´ve been fully booked so far. Magnificent company musicians lead by Roni Martin and flamenco stars Mariana Collado and Carlos Chamorro are putting their hearts in to this triangle drama. Kaari Martin and Atro Kahiluoto are butlers in the show like me but responsible of directing the brave vision of the performance. In the middle of the collapsing tables and melting ice decorations Jorma Uotinen is a vivid artists, twisting his role in Anna Karenina into a russian bear. Its a privilege to get to perform with him. Photo of Jorma by Minna Hatinen.
Another bear I met this week was hanging on the wall of the Finnish National Theatre. I made a venue check for the upcoming project with a drama director Irene Aho. I will do the scenography for Jennifer Tremblay´s play The List. This will be my third collaboration with Irene. The play itself is a powerful monolog..
At Once, in Helsinki is the latest work by Carl Knif Company, and it will be premiered in Kuopio Dance Festival 14.6.2018. I look forward to this project since we have lots of great dancers on the stage. This will be a big production in the free field of the contemporary dance in Finland.
