Johanna Nuutinen is re-creating her work X-it for the West Australian Ballet for their Quarry season 2019.
X-it draws its inspiration from the theme of being constantly under surveillance. What kind of emotions and feelings does a non-ending – and un-escapable – state of being watched stir in a person?
The work was originally commissioned by Finnish National Ballet and had its premiere in May 2011.
