World premiere 18.5.2021

Performances 18.–30.5.2021

Svett is a performance that discloses corporeality through motifs of
pleasure, emancipation and the act of letting go. 

Svett (eng. sweat) by Hanna Ahti, Iida Kuningas, Aksinja Lommi, Tatu
Nenonen, Jani-Matti Salo, and Heidi Soidinsalo calls together dance,
light, and sound, and focuses on an uninhibited body and stage. The
guiding thought is to create a pulsating, flowing, and sweaty
performance that makes space for sensuous terrains.

The working process explores mechanisms of self-censorship and a
receptive body that leans towards premonition and harbours change. By
dancing like tomorrow never comes, Svett wishes to invoke feelings of
hope and coping.

Svett surfs on the wave of planetary change. It lives in the moment
just before last call and in the smell of existential sweat.
