Tero Saarinen Company: Transit
Tero Saarinen‘s latest large-scale choreography Transit is set to an orchestral trilogy by composer Sebastian Fagerlund, combined with the spatial sound design and electronic music of Tuomas Norvio. The stage design centers on an animated film installation by visual artist duo IC-98.
Tero Saarinen‘s latest choreography Transit is a frenzied and ritualistic fight for nature on the eve of destruction. The creation is set to an orchestral trilogy by composer Sebastian Fagerlund, combined with spatial sound design and electronic music of Tuomas Norvio. The stage design centers on an animated film installation by visual artist duo IC-98.
“Transit is one of the finest and most impressive works of Tero Saarinen’s career –– Sebastian Fagerlund’s trilogy together with Tuomas Norvio’s intelligently nuanced sound design fills the space effectively –– Saarinen is able to subtly express what he has to say through abstract alienation, so that everything is visible, but it is up to viewers to find it for themselves. –– Having internalized the movement language, the whole ensemble is technically fantastic, energetic, and present with a fierce sensitivity. –– Transit is a performance that is worth seeing and should be seen by as many people as possible to see. This is not an easy or lightweight performance, but challenging and searing, almost painfully beautiful, yet one that nourishes hope.”
