Performance of dance, voice and text.

An international group of dance artists will come to Caisa’s stage to present their newest work of dance, voice and text.
Interlacing unique moments and poetry of the immediate, Jane’s Solstice brings to light the subtle aspect of dance and text. The whole essence of the piece is articulated and developed in this transformation from the invisible to the visible, from the implicit to the explicit.

From the bottom of the darkness, we smell glimmer
From the bowels of the earth, we hear peaks calling us to climb
We crown our gods on even days
And dethrone them on odd ones
We’ll get somewhere
If time only has mercy on us
And there we’ll celebrate and sing our pagan songs…

Concept, dance, text: Vera Lapitskaya, Paolo Cingolani, Julyen Hamilton

Duration: 55 min

On Sunday 27.10. after the performance, there will be a public talk facilitated by Paula Tuovinen.

Tickets 10/15€
