Virva Talonen: IHONA

Contemporary dance

Dance work and a performative condition about skin.

Intention.
White noise.
Or letter for You.
Maybe still, indulgent dim terrain.
Neural net.
Or ocean, garden and road.

In the performance living humans pierced by velvet, flowers, dimness, rustle, flame and letters are crabbing, reaching, pealing, watching, interrupting, resting, stroking and touching. The sking streches, penetrates, rubs, thickens, escapes, tingles, turns around, gets tired, exhilarates. What is the skin that keeps one close to another?

IHONA continues Virva’s choreographic practice in which the interest focuses on acts of writing and touching in corporeal performative condition.
