Kylmäketju + Murros – Tanssin Voima Festivaali
Date and timeFri 1.10.2021, at 6:00 p.m.
Dance film Kylmäketju (Cold Chain) by choreographer Ninni Perkko deals with cross-generational silence and comments on the history of the use of power via a woman’s body.
Kylmäketju, performed by more than 30 women, among them academic Marjo Kuusela, Ninni Perkko, Krista-Julia Arppo and many others, delves into the silent stories of families. The performers in the film are all women, between the ages of 25 and 90. The motion language is built on expressive dance and the techniques of physical theatre.
The humorous dance performance, Murros (Revolution), deals with behavioural norms that are transmitted from one generation to the next.
Murros is the stage version of the Kylmäketju dance film by the same creators: choreographer and dance artist Ninni Perkko; choreographer and academic Marjo Kuusela and dancer Krista-Julia Arppo.
The work deals with maintaining control and keeping up appearances as well as non-verbal power, and it is based on structural improvisation.
