Dance Theatre MD: A Giant Leap

Contemporary dance|Young audiences|Dance Theatre

Co-production of Teatteri Siperia and Dance Theatre MD. Premiere 23.3.2019.

A co-production of Teatteri Siperia and MD, A Giant Leap examines our dreams and life changes. Moving between different realities, this three-part stage production ponders the questions of how to put your wishes into words and how to reach your goals. Can we make it to the end of the leap? What’s on the other side? Can we bridge the gap between age groups with empathy?

A Giant Leap is a multidisciplinary collaboration, and also an exploration for its makers, professionals experiencing their middle age. It is designed to provoke thought, not to teach. The leap’s final destination is set by a group of youths, the experts of our future.

“What is the next giant leap for mankind? Could it be a movement towards a dialogical, global democracy? Young people see it more clearly, but how could we, as adults, understand them better?” –Director Piia Peltola
