OPEN REHEARSALS OF GHOST VISITORS ON 23.10.

Autumn’s premiere Ghost visitors has open for public -rehearsals on wednesday 23.10. The doors are open for one hour from 4 pm to 5 pm.

Ghost visitors is a new contemporary dance piece for four dancers by choreographer Samuli Roininen.

The starting point is a confined space, the bony human skull which protects and insulates the head, our memories and sense of self. Who and what am I in this space? All of us here, we’re no longer humans. We are merely our own ghosts. Ghost Visitors is an intensely poetic contemporary dance piece that shows the dangers of isolation while examining the need for intimacy. It also presents one unique bodily vision of our future.

Sound design for the performance is done by Romulus Chiciuc, costume design by Ella Kauppinen and lights by Sari Mayer. On stage are dancing Jonna Aaltonen (visitor), Suvi Eloranta, Anniina Kumpuniemi and Mari Rosendahl. Premiere is on friday 29.11. at 7 pm at Hällä Stage. Performances can be seen in December 2019 and January 2020.

SUSANNA LEINONEN’S AND ALPO AALTOKOSKI’S CONTEMPORARY CHOREOGRAPHIES PREMIERE ON 26.10.2018

Two internationally successful and award-winning Finnish choreographers Susanna Leinonen and Alpo Aaltokoski brings their new dance pieces to Tampere. The performances will be premiered on 26.10. at 7 pm at Hällä Stage. Dance Theatre MD’s dancers are performing in both performances.

Susanna Leinonen’s The Filed is a contemporary woman’s look at the memories of the Finnish Civil War. The choreography draws upon stories and recollections that have been passed down through generations – and also upon the silence surrounding a devastating event in a nation’s past. The music for the performance is composed by Kasperi Laine. Dancers: Suvi Eloranta, Anniina Kumpuniemi, Mari Rosendahl and Samuli Roininen.

Alpo Aaltokoski’s Sisters is completing Aaltokoski’s trilogy beginning with Together (2010) and Brothers (2017). Sisters continues an expedition into movement, dealing with the subjects of shared motion and personal connections, the deeper aspects of being together and the pain of separation. Merging dance with Estonian composer Arvo Pärt’s piano concerto Für Alina, Aaltokoski creates a temporal and emotional framework for dancers Elina Jakowleva and Mari Rosendahl.
