Kira Riikonen – Tuukka Jukola: Ankeuttajat

Contemporary dance

Ankeuttajat is a performance about little devils hiding in (work) life which bring about misery, shame and malaise.

Ankeuttajat is a performance about little devils hiding in (work) life which bring about misery, shame and malaise. Usually, they appear when you turn your back or when it gets dark. Sometimes you can catch a glimpse of such a creature when you look into the mirror when tired.

They are difficult to recognise and their speedy movements are even more difficult to trace. Nevertheless, they leave traces of destruction, garbage, charred bridges and spiritual secretions.

The Ankeuttajat wrench, dethrone, stiffen up and cripple. The Ankeuttajat gnaw at the energy of life, daily joy and finally your sense of self. Few of us have encountered Ankeuttajat face to face but such a creature is tracked, driven to the foreground and banished to a corner in this performance.

On this ritualistic evening there is the opportunity to confront two Ankeuttajat face to face, dig into the past memories of your own Ankeuttajat, renounce them and their remaining traces. The brave ones could also have the opportunity to get a glimpse of their own personal Ankeuttaja(t) and hear what it has to say.
