A Couple of Humans tanssiteos

A Couple of humans is a performance that combines physical and visual theater, reflecting on humanity from the perspectives of encounter, communication, and interaction.

It is important to pay attention to the most important things first. Other people’s actions are often the most important. Relationships between people determine the form and structure of society from the grass-roots level. On the other hand, detection and identification are uncertain; people can be our best friends or our worst enemies. By default, people are to blame for everything.

So who am I? Who are we together?

The theme of the performance is interaction between human beings. The original idea for the piece was born during the first months of corona virus pandemic, when all human contacts were forced to the minimum. The choreographer of the piece, Riikka Puumalainen, started to think about how social interaction between people works in an environment that has become digital, and how this lack of contact is reflected in intimate relationships or people who live without them.
