Angel is dance artist Elina Pirinen's latest work for one dancer, eight voices and light. She is joined on the Pannuhalli stage of the Cable Factory by Lumen Valo ('Glow of Snow'), a vocal ensemble specialising in polyphonic vocal music of the Renaissance. Also lighting designer Heikki Paasonen and dramatist Heidi Väätänen are involved in creating the world of Angel.

Angel is the reality of a human being who fragilely and committedly plays with powerful states of existence, surrounded by a cantata-like soundscape of eight human voices. It articulates a desire to construct the environment and the climate of living on parameters of sensitivity.
