Auraco: Tuntu – X Dance Festival

Annankatu 30, 00100 Helsinki
Annantalo Arts Centre

How do you hear a dance, how do you feel a dance?

How do you hear a dance, how do you feel a dance?

Steps and rhythms, the flow of air, touch, breathing, the rustling of clothes and hissing of the floor – all the things involved in experiencing a space through the body without the dominance of visual perception!

The performers dive into the unforgettable world of sensory sensations and experiences together with the audience.

The main target audience is 0 to 6-year-old visually impaired children with an adult, but the performance is suitable for others too. Audience members with normal vision can try out different visibility limiting glasses and scarves during the performance.

Duration approx. 50 min.
Tuntu was awarded on the basis of its impressive inclusiveness at the FITC 2018 -festival in Bucharest, Romania.
