My new solo work HATCHED will be premiering at i-Dance Festival in Hong Kong on 9.12.2014.
We have just published the trailer which you can see on this webpage and done the final technical rehearsals at Studio Zoomi. Looking forward to our trip to China and hopefully we get a chance to perform the production also in Finland in the near future !
SYNOPSIS OF THE WORK:
Eng. HATCH: to emerge from an egg, (of an egg) to produce a young animal, shade, to mark with close parallel lines, an opening in a door or floor
The work deals with anonymity, the structure of identity and the use of power. Individuals and, consequently, larger groups of people, are easier to manage when they are offered fewer alternatives, the content and the the distribution of information are regulated, external information channels are closed, own will is removed, and eventually the subjects are completely isolated from their environment. What this type of approach causes in an individual and what happens to that person´s physicality in an environment where verbal communication is not possible?
