Dance company Liisa Pentti +Co organises a weekend event at Maunula House on 12th and 13th December. The event comprises three different contemporary dance works that show the diversity of contemporary dance in 2020s. The programme includes Liisa Pentti’s classic solo work from the year 2011, The Weight of My Heart, where dance and personal stories form a work resembling dance theatre. Additionally, the programme includes Pia Lindy’s, Heini Nukari’s and Annika Tudeer’s Layers, a surprising and skilful improvisatory work formed of three solos as well as Mikko Niemistö’s Odd Meters where dance, sound and light create a captivating bodily experience.
The weekend ends with a discussion event that gathers together the performers of the works seen. The dance artists discuss their work and working methods shedding light to the multi-layered nature of contemporary dance and ponder on the meanings of performing arts in the ever more virtual world. The discussion is led by dramaturge Titta Halinen.
