Yötön Yö

Yötön yö is an ensemble consisting of two small works, where evening fairy tales told in the movement language of ballet and contemporary dance take the viewer into the mysterious world of dreams. This project was develop by the Kielo Dance Company.   This piece follows Sibelius 6.1. "Kaiku"  which also celebrates the centenary of Jean Sibelius' sixth symphony by giving it a new interpretation. The melancholic, dramatic and hopeful themes that run through the continuous dialogue of the original work are still relevant in 2023.

Merle Karp and I did the visuals for the ballet piece. The core idea of the visuals was the exploration of dreams. The different scenes follow the different movements of the symphony.
