The performance stretches the boundaries of truth, creating a fragmentary world of the unconscious; our memories are deceitful and subject to interpretation, yet we still construct our identities through storylines that are based on them.

Petri Kekoni Company 369° premiere
NEW ARTWORK 369° ON PREMIERE 22.11. AT CIRKO STAGE
This work can be related to the moving sculpture, which can be observed from different angles at the same time. The name of the work, 369°, reflects to the movement composition, which is open simultaneously all the directions. Like choreographers words: “A perfect circle (360°) is in balance, and that is precisely what we don't want. The idea of balance is a kind of phantom from which we keep fleeing in each art work. “

Villa: stage premiere
After an exhibition and outdoor performances the hypnotic and captivating Villa (Finnish for ‘wool’) will have its third manifestation, this time on stage in Valvehall, Cultural Centre Valve in Oulu. The work, describing the long relationship between humans and nature will have its world re-created again.
The project is a collaboration between choreographer Pirjo Yli-Maunula, costume and set designer Pirjo Valinen, light designer Jukka Huitila and sound designer Aake Otsala.
Humans have been using wool for thousands of years. The age-old material becomes a counterpoint against the unethical practices of cheap mass production and the ideology of the dispensable.
Wool has many souls, many shapes and many meanings for humans. After the winter and the summer the artists’ and the audience’s year-long journey with wool will come to its conclusion in the beginning of a new winter. Villa on stage is a monumental world, created by a wool totem, sculptural dance, light and sound.
The team consists also of dancers Titta Court and Milla Virtanen, visual artist Heidi Kesti and photographer and writer Janne-Pekka Manninen.
