Quiet emotions

Two people, unknown to each other, nod, walk to the center of the hall, embrace each other, find a common rhythm, blend with each other, hover for a moment, share a dance, hide their feelings, nod again and part.

The work takes these charismatic performers into the heart of a Finnish couple dance, into communal celebration, where loneliness shouts its existence and quiet emotions discuss their own silent language.
