“Saarinen has created an agonizingly beautiful work with a sounding board in modern society.” (Tanssi 4/2004)

Addressing the themes of community, loneliness, devotion and sacrifice, this dance work was inspired by the radical Shakers movement that reached its peak in 19th century America.

The performance on Sunday 4.9. (as previously announced in our brochure) is cancelled.
A new performance is scheduled for Tuesday 30.8. at 19:30.

Performances are fully booked. Ask for cancellations from Lippupiste, tel. 0600 900 900 (1,25 €/min + local call charge).

"Here the dance becomes a strange, violent and complex conduit for the struggle of will over flesh. I've not seen, or experienced, anything like it." (The Independent 10.4.2005)
