We are happy to share this Autumn program made in cooperation with the Espoo City Theatre. These performance series are the first part of our GAP LAB project, which is carried out from 2018-2020 with support from the Finnish Cultural Foundation. The aim of the project is to promote artistically valuable as well as culturally and linguistically diverse cooperation between artists of different backgrounds, Finnish arts institutions and different individuals. The following projects were collected through an open call and curated by Teemu Mäki.

PERFORMANCES IN REVONTULI HALL

Continuum

Mon 1 October 7 pm

Continuum is a concert and dance performance. It explores the fundamental elements of rhythm, texture, movement and human connection, building on the concept of resonance as both a physical sensation and a metaphor for intercultural interaction, dialogue and collaboration. A dialogue is created between musicians and dancers from different backgrounds, investigating themes of identity, diversity, human connection, borders, struggle, perseverance and the search for common ground, striving for a state where the performers are taken over by the music and movement itself.
