Tero Saarinen Company: Scheme of Things & Vox Balaenae

Tero Saarinen’s touching new solo premiers in Finland. Vox Balaenae, Voice of the Whale, reflects the primordial strength of nature as wellas its alienation. The choreography gets its influence from a classic modern music piece of the same name composed by the American George Crumb.

The first performance of the evening’s double bill is Tero Saarinen Company’s Scheme of Things in which six dancers explore the arbitrariness of relationships and recurring behavioural patterns.
