Susanna Leinonen Company: TOXIC
Dance Theatre|Contemporary dance
Vicious TOXIC dives into the physical and psychical effects of social media in our time.
TOXIC lives for attention. It’s obsessed with clout and influence. The body exists simply and unapologetically in order to create value.
TOXIC pleases and thrives. It shapes its essence according to the desolate demands of the society. It exploits its power without quilt or shame. It invades intrusively both the individuals and the environment.
TOXIC is an unapologetic product of our brutal times.
The viciously stunning piece plays its malicious games while maintaining the flawless image.
