Iiro Näkki & work group: [ frames ]

Contemporary dance

Merging old school mastery with next-generation flair, [ frames ] doesn’t let you see the full map but makes you pick your own points of interest as the situations on stage evolve from unrecognizable to recognizable. Choreographed for four dancers, this piece is a shapeshifting mass of movement created with acrobatic skill, teamwork, improvisation and heaps upon heaps of cloth.

Merging old school mastery with next-generation flair, [ frames ] doesn’t let you see the full map but makes you pick your own points of interest as the situations on stage evolve from unrecognizable to recognizable.

The piece showcases the diversity of the young Finnish dance scene by combining traditional and next-generation dance in a refined and breathtaking choreography.
