A corporeal concert for five

Dancer-choreographer Eeva Muilu is known for her bold, internationally acclaimed solo performances and her highly praised group choreographies for amateur dancers. Spring 2012 marks the first occasion in a lengthy period that Muilu has choreographed a piece for professional dancers.

Quintet is a combination of minimalism and playful physicality. It takes us back to a child-like state of discovery – a world of wonder and marvel. How can the simplest of events evolve into a full-blown spectacle? Can a choreography be lively yet retain a pristine clarity of structure?
