Liisa Risu & Mirva Mäkinen & Sonja Jokiniemi: Music+

Contemporary dance

Music+ is a collage-style performance for 12 dancers, objects and space. On the macro level, Music+ is simple and graphic, yet its micro levels are complex and organic. It resembles a forest growing inside geometric architecture. Music+ is the playing of an instrument – and that instrument is spacetime.

The artistic process of Music+ focuses on music and sound as a sensory and spatial experiences and on the potential of dance as sound sculptures. A shared source of inspiration for the creators have been the words “haunted air”.

Choreographers of the work are Liisa Risu and Mirva Mäkinen. The third creator, Sonja Jokiniemi, is engaged with visual choreography. The workgroup also includes sound artist Jussi Saivo, lighting designer Jukka Huitila and no less than 12 dancers of different ages and generations.
