Susanna Leinonen Company, a leading group in Finnish contemporary dance, is looking for expressive elderly people interested in dance to take part in a dance perfomance.

The performance premiers at Stoa in March 2023 and will be performed by professional dancers and elderly people. The performance is part of the City of Helsinki's project to promote the mobility of and cultural activities for elderly people. Susanna Leinonen Company’s earlier, similar performance “Juuret” premiered in Stoa in March 2022.

Although the performers have different starting points for the process, the choreographer Susanna Leinonen works in the same way as with any other artistic work. The performance’s quality criteria remains high while individuals’ different ablities and needs are taken into account. “My goal is to create a touching and thought-provoking piece, where the stage is occupied by equal performers. The age and amount of experience are irrelevant, when the performance is taken to the stage in front of an audience”, says Susanna Leinonen.
