SUSANNA LEINONEN COMPANY’S TOUCH OF GRAVITY TO PREMIERE AT HELSINKI FESTIVAL

 

The newest dance creation of Finnish top choreographer Susanna Leinonen Touch of Gravity sees its premiere at Helsinki Festival in 21.-22.8.2014 at Almi Hall. The dance piece for six female dancers brings to stage an astonishing visual and kinetic art with Leinonen’s strong and personal movement language.

The dancers escape the limits of their physicality with deliberate slow movements emerging from the ground. The moving figures seek their places within a group and attempt to disrupt its balance. The striking visuals give rise to a surreal on stage universe.

Touch of Gravity is also part of Cultural Centre Stoa’s programme with four subsequent performances on 25.-28.9.2014.
