SEE I OBEY
Susanna Leinonen Company
Saturday 11 nov. 9 p.m, Ole Olsen
Cool, physical dance and a reminder that life can be seen from many sides - a must-see under årets festival!
SEE | OBEY is dance about the absurdism of life. The dark themes of Leinonen still rise from the reverse side of life but the new piece finds a brighter angle and even touches some borders of humour. The piece opens a window to the world whose lines only dance and movement can draw and who receives a full form through the imaginative music, illogically rational texts and eye-pleasing visuals.
SEE | OBEY is not only a dance piece by Susanna Leinonen but also a dance film by Jouka Valkama. SEE | OBEY film tells simultaneously three different narratives about human emotions, every day events and conflicts by physical expression and movement. The time is manipulated by cinematic means and the moments that happen in a blink of an eye get a new depth with slow motion. The film uses both several professional dancers and almost a hundred volunteers.
