Leena Harjunpää Co: Feeling Cute

Contemporary dance|Premiere

Feeling Cute is a solo contemporary dance piece by choreographer Leena Harjunpää. The piece invites you to reflect on the mechanisms and motives around the essence and the illusion of cuteness.

“The idea that a girl has to be cute and well behaved, at least smile, has been etched on my mind ever since childhood. The ultimate culmination of cuteness is curtseying. It is a strange combination of showing submission but also using power. By acting cute you can get what you want and wrap someone around your little finger. Who could resist cute?”

Feeling Cute is a solo contemporary dance piece by choreographer Leena Harjunpää. The piece invites you to reflect on the mechanisms and motives around the essence and the illusion of cuteness. The starting point is to contemplate on what cuteness is, what lies behind it, why it can be used for effect and why it is sometimes perceived as annoying.
