RIKU LEHTOPOLKU & NUORET TANSSIJAT:

VIRTA     

The work is motivated by the urge to gather around a common goal and to dance together, as opposed to comparison and confrontation. The young dancers have been working with artistic director Riku Lehtopolku since last December, and the process culminates in the meeting of all the dancers on the opening day of the festival.    

Virta spreads out all over Kuopio, letting the dance flow through the city, eventually bringing the performers to dance together at the market square. It creates a landscape within a landscape, where organic meets stone and the inner world the external - and above all, a person meets another. 

Free admission!
