    Dance and circus performace with contemporary versions of Jean Sibelius’ music

    Hands lift skirts up from the black waters of Tuonela, land of the dead. Back arches in a balance defying outreach towards the underworld. Dark figures surround the wanderer on the brinks of Tuonela river.

    This international collaboration reinterprets the Swan of Tuonela by Jean Sibelius as a stage performance. New music composed for the performance is in dialogue with Sibelius’ symphonic Lemminkäinen Suite and his piano, violin and cello music.

    The renowned Korean choreographer Sungsoo Ahn and Finnish circus pioneer Ville Walo get hold of Sibelius’ composition together with three exceptional musicians. In the hands of these five artists the Swan of Tuonela gets reconnected with contemporary reality by means of inventive remixing, surrealistic acrobatics and fans that flutter as a swan.
