HYÖKY | SURGE

In Johanna Nuutinen’s choreography, the world surges over the audience in a riptide of overwhelming, shattering stimulation. The concept of happiness as constantly increasing consumption has worn out both itself and humanity. Nuutinen pulls the audience through chaos into the eye of the storm, where all-encompassing peace is finally found. Lauri Porra’s newly composed score and Tuomas Norvio’s sound design create a powerful framework for a highly affecting experience.

“Will we only see the clarity of the moment in the chaos when we take the time to face both ourselves and each other?”
– Johanna Nuutinen
