Contemporary dance duet THE DAYS is an intimate dive into one relationships history

Arresting and praised Contemporary dance piece visits Turku City Theatre, Sopukka Stage 11.11. and 12.11. THE DAYS was premiered in December 2018 in Dance Moon Festival of Pori. Concept and direction of the performance is by renown English choreographer Theo Clinkard and it is performed by two unique Finnish dancers, Maria Nurmela and Ville Oinonen. One singular physical concept carries throughout the performance creating an ever changing physical, psychological and metapfhorical landscape. The Days engenders a world of ever shifting negotiations, complex feelings and comic disconnection. Caught in an impossible loop of absurd and heartfelt exchanges, the performers journey takes the form of a lifetime shared, in this compelling performance about care, resilience and the desire for connection.

THE DAYS in Turku City Theatre 11.11. and 12.11. at 7pm. Tickets 25€/15€ (includes cloakroom and Föli drive to theatre)
