PRESS RELEASE 25.4.2019

Touch of Gravity invited to Petrozavodsk, Russia

 

Susanna Leinonen Company has been invited to perform at Nord Dance Festival in Petrozavodsk, Russia, in June 2019. The company will present Touch of Gravity, a piece which originally premiered in 2014 as a commissioned work for the renowned Helsinki Festival. Since then the piece has been presented in South Korea, the US and Austria, as well as a part of a nationally televised Finland 100 gala in 2017.

 

Touch of Gravity deals with the push and pull of the ground – as well as that of the people and relationships around us – and explores every dancer’s dream: to be weightless. Susanna Leinonen’s choreographic work is complemented by Jouka Valkama’s surreal video projections and Kasperi Laine’s innovative music.

 

Nord Dance Festival, organized by the Musical Theatre of the Republic of Karelia for the first time ever this year, aims to present top-quality dance pieces from Northern Europe. In addition to Susanna Leinonen Company, Finnish contemporary flamenco ensemble Compañía Kaari & Roni Martin and renowned Norwegian contemporary dance group Jo Strømgren Kompani are among those presenting works.
