A small country town provides an ideal setting for artists to encounter their audiences. Works by leading names in Finnish and international dance will be performed on three stages, in urban spaces and in the Great Outdoors, with several courses and discussion events also included in the festival programme.
Headline performers at this first festival programme of Artistic Director Riku Lehtopolku will include Peeping Tom, Alan Lucien Øyen & Winter Guests, Guy Nader and Maria Campos, Compagnie 111 – Aurélien Bory, Le Patin Libre, and many other talented artists. The busy festival week will feature more than one hundred dance performances, courses and other events, so be sure not to miss our 52nd season!
Dance Current presents artists from the pinnacle of Finnish contemporary dance in an up-to-the-minute review of this art form today. Besides varied stage productions on each evening, the comprehensive programme includes dance video presentations, public debates, a club event series, and specially commissioned city performances.
