Zodiak season ends with an evocative and documentary guest performance from Kainuu. Loyal to her characteristic style, the choreographer Kirsi Saastamoinen has stepped out of the black box and challenged choreography to work on society’s terms. Drawing from real life her choreography acts as a channel to the thoughts and realms of different people.
Multilevelled duet AmazinGRace is constructed by using verbal and bodily comments of dozens of people coming from different social backgrounds and life situations. Documentary material on today’s society, existence, happiness and worry has been brought together by using dance, video and theatre to form an effective entity.
