Tanssiteatteri Tsuumi, Tanssiteatteri Helsingissä

Attic is a duet piece the themes of which revolve around time and relationships. It examines the duration of a relationship, the shared time coming to a halt, and the difficulty of being just here. As well as it explores the time it self – how it sometimes speeds up und sometimes stops almost completely.

Attic is a visual dance theatre work, 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, dance theater and contemporary folk dance. Together with Janne Teivainen, who works as a visual designer, Paloniemi has created a strong, visual piece of art, which is interpreted by the artists of Tsuumi Dance Theatre.

Duration: 35 minutes
