Attic is Matti Paloniemi’s choreography for two dancers reflecting on time and relationships. The work examines duration of a relationship, stopping of time and difficulty of being present. The piece is touching, delightful and serious at the same time.

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 and dance-theatrical work of art, which is interpreted by the artists of Tsuumi Dance Theatre.
