The Sensemaker (2017 - 2018)

 

 

A phone, an answering machine, a chair, a suit, a pair of high heeled shoes. Bits and pieces of music and audio texts switching erratically, as varied as they are unexpected. The same moves, over and over, interpreted in different ways. A meaningful choreography performed by a mute dancer. Panicked looks, jerky moves, but a smile, always, even though it’s tense.

 

‘Please show us the whole extent of your motivation and dynamism’. Let the job interview begin.

 

 

 

Upcoming

- 14, 15 and 16 February 2020, Alba International Physical Theatre Festival, Alba, Italy

'It left me feeling  deeply affected and pondering everything that I had seen and heard. I hope and trust that ultimately it will leave you feeling as optimistic as I do about the power of art as a force for change.'

BUM ON A SEAT

'Tarkkailuun, yksityisyyden menettämiseen ja teknisiin häiriötekijöihin altistumisessa on omat riskinsä. Esitys tarjoaa mainiota asennetta, jolla vastata näihin kriittisiin kohtiin.''
