Ontto Harmaa Tanssi – A Dance Performance

Ontto Harmaa Tanssi is a dance performance built around Olli-Pekka Tennilä‘s poetry collection Ontto Harmaa. The performance has been created by choreographer-dancers Veli Lehtovaara and Anna Mustonen together with the poet.

Ontto Harmaa Tanssi explores the margins of and connections between body and language, poetry and dance, and book and performance. The work resides in space, the forest, at sea as well as in the streets. It examines the relationship between fragments and environments, perception, and sensitivity. The performance tries to open a space for the poetry to become heard, seen, and known.
