Dreams of Replay

In her new work choreographer Susanna Leinonen takes the audience to an inspirational journey. Music composed by Kasperi Laine and the brilliant narrative by Leinonen complement each other and provoke thoughts. Stronger awareness of the implications of our choices drives us to look back and analyze our actions. What if we could do everything again? Would we make different choices? Would it be just the same?

In Dreams of Replay Leinonen has returned to her previous works. She has built this production by listening, remembering, reflecting, thinking back and exploring the movement language from her previous choreographies. She hasn’t reused the material, but instead this journey into the past has generated a whole new and unique world.

In Dreams of Replay minimalistic scenography meet strange and abundant characters and the lighting design (by Kalle Ropponen) complements the style by creating affective and influential visual images. The audience is forced to look more closely and consider what is really shown on stage.
