Susanna Leinonen Company: Romeo & Julia

Susanna Leinonen Company presents a new version of the 2012 premiered Romeo & Julia before it heads to the Dance Salad Festival in USA. Choreographers Susanna Leinonen and Jouka Valkama have created a rendition where two families and two ways of movement meet and become one. The work combines death and love as well as dance and moving picture – composing a visual and physical interpretation of the beautiful story of Romeo and Julia.

Circo Aereo: Mano

Mano e tono, a hand and a sound. With the motion, the silent body of an acrobat bends, pauses and falls. Circus artist Mika Kaski and musician–composer Tapani Rinne combine their talents in this piece where meandering soundscapes follow the path of the acrobat rising to the highs.
