Performance archive 2016 Ninu Lindfors: Come Undone
They say that you form a connection with another person by being truthful about yourself, about your incompleteness, imperfections and untruthfulness. That truly meeting another human being is therapeutic. But I don't know what is too private to share, and shame prevents me from doing it – or pride. Or perhaps they are the same thing. I wonder if you are like me? Do you hide the same things? Are ashamed like me? Think the same heavy thoughts as I? Does anyone else live like me?
Me. Me. Me.
Come Undone is a solo dance performance. The workgroup – five times me – creates a performance out of loneliness, out of the need to share and the fear of coming out.
Come Undone is the first choreography by Ninu Lindfors, better known as a dancer. The team is completed by Riitta Röpelinen, Erno Aaltonen and Kasperi Laine, who are familiar from many projects and performances. Dance and performance artist Maija Mustonen participates as Lindfors' assistant choreographer.
