Double bill evening: The Field, chor. Susanna Leinonen and Sisters, chor. Alpo Aaltokoski
A contemporary woman’s look at the memories of the Finnish Civil War, Susanna Leinonen’s 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.
Completing Alpo 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.
