Susanna Leinonen Company has been invited to the Festival Internacional de Danza Contemporánea Lila López to open the festival with Nasty on 26th July.

Nasty is a strikingly topical work that centers on the expectations, limitations and attacks targeted at our bodies. The piece presents an unvarnished vision of our world, where evil hides in the structures of the society but also in ourselves: we pass along the injustice and cruelty we have experienced.

Susanna Leinonen Company’s works are known for their extremely skillful and demanding movement. This time choreographer Susanna Leinonen and her ensemble have chosen to examine our bodily limits, as well as how constantly being looked at and under conflicting demands and expectations shape the female body and experience. In the center of the work are dancers and their bodies as tools of artistic work. In Nasty, the highly trained physique becomes a machine that stretches, bends and creaks to fulfill its full potential. But the question remains: who gets to define that potential?
