Susanna Leinonen Company to Perform at Tanzmesse NRW in August

Susanna Leinonen Company has been selected from among 700 applications to perform in the internationale tanzmesse nrw official programme. Tanzmesse, held every two years in Düsseldorf, Germany, is the largest and most significant professional event dedicated exclusively to contemporary dance. It brings together 1900 professionals and thousands of spectators.

The company will present Dreams of Replay, which garnered rave reviews from Finnish critics – Helsingin Sanomat described the piece as “stunning” and “fit to become a star export product of Finnish dance theatre”. The performance will be held in Capitol Theatre, on of the event’s biggest stages, on Wednesday 29th of August at 10pm, as the second part of a double-bill night shared with the Basque company Kukai Dantza.

”This is the third time we have been selected to the tanzmesse programme, and the first time we get to present a main work on a big stage. I am extremely pleased and proud of this vote of confidence in the company’s artistic vision and growth. Tanzmesse is also an important stepping stone to other events and festivals.”
