At Theatre Telakka, Tampere, Tullikamarin aukio 3

Attic is a duet piece the themes of which revolve around time and relationships: the duration of a relationship, the shared time coming to a halt, and the difficulty of being just here. It’s a visual piece of dance theatre, with drama, passion and some seasoning humour. It is simultaneously bitter-sweet and touching, charming and serious.

Choreographer Matti Paloniemi’s way of working combines contemporary dance, elements of theatre and elements of folk dance. Together with Janne Teivainen, who works as a visual designer of the piece, Paloniemi has created a strong and visual artwork interpreted by the artists of Tsuumi Dance Theatre.
