TOGETHER IN THE UNIVERSE OF SOUND Festival at Maunula House on October 15-16 & 29-30

By News

Liisa Pentti +Co and Oblivia gather their forces to organise the Together in the Universe of Sound event at Maunula House during two weekends in October, 15–16 and 29-30.

What is experimental music theatre in 2021? How do you work together across genre boundaries? Together in the Universe of Sound focuses on the dialogue between music and performing arts. Invisible connections, entertaining variations and surprising openings are born in the encounter between performing arts and music.

The event brings together Finnish and international guests who work innovatively with music and the performing arts. We have invited two European groups that combine contemporary music, performance and dance. Their works will be shown for the first time in Finland.

Ref2020 and afternoon of contemporary dance at Oodi on Oct 9–10

By News


Liisa Pentti + Co  brings Ref2020 to Maijansali at Oodi together with an afternoon of contemporary dance.

Ref2020 is performed on Saturday Oct 9 at 5pm.
The inspiration for the work Ref2020 has been Brian Eno’s 58-minute-long composition Reflection. The work, created with six dancers, suggests a new kind of connection between contemporary dance and Eno’s music where the meditative music creates singing and historicity of movement.
Free entry, seats can be pre-booked at the online box office.

On Sunday we explore the themes of the perfomance in an open workshop and discussion. This afternoon of contemporary dance takes place at 13.00–15.30. Free entry, no pre-registration.

We follow the Covid-19 safety regulations at our events. Please attend the event only healthy and wear a face mask.
