Indigo

The Choreography deals with four different themes that intertwine with one another, revealing unconscious associations, thoughts and emotions. The starting points for the movement are the mysteriousness of moments and the creations of illusions: the movement itself is physical, kaleidoscopic and full of nuances.

Reviews

  • Susanna Leinonen surprises with ballet- "Susanna Leinonen is the great surpriser of our modern dance. Just when we have learned to recognise her as a contemporary dance choreographer, she brings her history in the world of ballet to the stage. Her new work "Indigo" resembles a surreal and baroque dream in which tropical birds live in a colorful magical forest. A cunning trick indeed, because a consequence of this is that in Pyhäjärvi, the temple of contemporary dance, we got to watch contemporary ballet!" Jukka O. Miettinen Helsingin Sanomat 15.7.2002
