Meadow, meadow, meadow
A work of no less than five director-choreographers, premiered at Zodiak – Center for New Dance in March of 2015. The authors are the choreographer-dancers Elina Pirinen and Maria Saivosalmi from Finland, the Palestinian-French vocal and performance artist Jassem Hindi, and the Irish theater artists Ruairí Donovan and Cathy Walsh.
The performance consists of three parts. Three differently intimate meadows, three individual artistic visions. Together they form a contemporary landscape, where events affect each other and are moving forward with the inevitability of a slowed down avalanche.
In addition to choreographers, Kenneth Bruun Carlson (Norway/Sweden), Alli Mattila (PKKY Dance Education in Outokumpu), Justus Pienmunne (Theatre Academy TeaK) and Aino Voutilainen (Finland) also take the stage.
