Jenni Kivelä ja Kiltit ihmiset: Strange & Special
Strange & Special is a performance that moves between dance and physical theatre.
Strange & Special is a performance that moves between dance and physical theatre. What happens when two different species of plant characters encounter each other? This comical and naivistic duet of Jenni Kivelä and Jyrki Karttunen asks whether people will always remain alien species to each other.
Strange & Special is an independent sequel to choreographer Jenni Kivelä’s highly praised solo performance Strange Plant. What happens when Strange Plant meets the alien species Special Plant? Is the other one poisonous? How long are its roots? Will it spread quickly? Does it also like springtime?
The performance centers around the naivistic relationship of two plants of different species. The duet asks how long they will remain alien species to each other. Until they get to know each other? Whenever they disagree? Always?
Can two plants of different species grow side by side and share the same garden?
