Event Introduction

A comprehensive work of art like no other

A new Tero Saarinen Company work is always an event. Receiving its Finnish premiere at Helsinki Festival is Transit, an expression of choreography that examines our relationship with nature for composer Sebastian Fagerlund’s orchestra trilogy Stonework, Drifts and Water Atlas. Fagerlund’s music and the powerful movement language of Tero Saarinen’s choreography combine with Tuomas Norvio’s sound design, Minna Tiikkainen’s light design and fashion designer Teemu Muurimäki’s costumes as well as a video installation by the award-winning artist duo IC-98. A critic for Sydsvenskan wrote of the premiere at Malmö Opera that the work is above all a comprehensive work of art that is both disturbing and full of hope.
