Dancer-choreographers Panu Varstala and Marjo Kuusela, together with director Vihtori Rämä aka Masi W. Eskolin, immerse into the relationships between text and dance in their creation Whose hands. How can written and spoken text create a strong and ambiguous space with dance, or against it? What happens between dance and text?
The piece premiered at Full Moon Dance Festival in 2012.
Whose hands respects the stage – and everything that can take place there. In addition to the stage characters, there is live music composed and performed by Joakim Berghäll and Varstala, and strong images – an absurd chaos.
