Lähtö

There is a woman and a man, who have a complicated relationship. Confused, they stand on a stage, surrounded by clothes. Feelings and thoughts are expressed through the movement of their bodies - and the movement of the clothes, which have a life of their own.

The piece will provide a unique theatre experience in which circus, magic, dance, clothing design and visual arts merge. It is performed by dancer Vera Selene Tegelman, magician Kalle Nio, and the magically moving clothes designed by Mila Moisio and Kaisa Rissanen. The movement of the clothes and other objects is accomplished by mixing traditional stage magic techniques with modern sensor and video technologies. The dreamlike, twisted soundscape of the piece is created by composer Samuli Kosminen.

The absurdness and miscommunication in relationships is brought into focus, as the performers communicate through the transformations of the clothing. Independent of the performers' actions, the clothes change their shape, color and figure, moving around the stage.
