Devil’s Lungs

A total 3D VR 360º experience, celebrating the mystical power of Finnish accordion & of women through music and dance.

Mystical stories about Finnish accordion collected by the accordion virtuoso and composer Anne-Mari Kivimäki; an eclectic mix of Finnish folk and contemporary dance traditions in the dazzling performances by choreographer Reetta-Kaisa Iles and Tsuumi Dance Theatre; fierce ethno-rock sounds of Kivimäki/Iles band “Puhti” inspired filmmaker Alla Kovgan to dive into virtual reality. The result is a surreal deadpan 3D VR 360º experience, challenging boundaries between traditional and contemporary, male and female, hellish and heavenly, ecstatic and everyday, celebrating power of women through Finnish music and dance.
