Susanne Holmlund -

¡RÅ!

Archaic Finnish song meets flamencodance

 

A surprisingly obvious meeting of two direct, strong expressions with their roots in folkloric traditions.

 

¡RÅ! is a journey through womens lives. There are moments of happiness, freedom, frustation and melancholy, captivating incantations and spells, vulnerable, tender singing and susceptible dance as beautiful as they can be.

ORIGEN

Foto: Monica Sihlén

The sharp tones of the flamenco guitar sound over the mountain ridge, the streaming water listens to the song's deep timbre. What are origins?

 

The question of what origins can be is central in this poetic flamencoshow. The song, music and dance are intertwined with moving images from the awardwinning music documentary ”Origins – a window towards voices” (by Ellen Pontara and Roland Pantze).

TUUT, PLING, TA-RIA TAKATA

A musical journey through both laughter-inducing as serious moments full of presence, human warmth and contact.

 

Tuut, pling, ta-ria takata is an interactive, acoustic show for children. The audience gets to listen to new compositions of the living guitar legend Eva Möller together with the rock n roll saxofonist Kai Sundquist and flamencoqueen Pia "del Norte" Pohjakallio.

 

During the ride the children are turned into palmeros, clappers, and return home with 12-beats in their bags!
