Sukka, Nukka and Tuulispää – the three daughters

Three daughters and their stories twine with traditional folk tales in this dance theatre premiere for the whole family. On her way north, one of the daughters confronts ice, snow and the animals of the arctic. The other finds the fishes and the mermaids of the warm south. The third decides to create her own myths. A giant wooden pram is also brought along the trip. This pram also worked as an inspiration for this performance, and it was made by visual artist Terhi Kaakinen.

The dancers of Tsuumi both sing and dance in this joyful performance for the whole family. This modern folklore piece is written by Eppu Nuotio and directed by Kurt Nuotio and its main themes revolve around love and longing. It transports the viewers to the magical charms of the Northern folk tradition. The choreography is made by Johanna Elovaara and the lovely music is by Anna Anttonen.
