Survivors

MAKE IT WORK!
FAKE IT UNTIL YOU MAKE IT!
IS THAT YOUR FINAL ANSWER?!

SURVIVORS, a dance performance for two actors, invites the audience into tragicomic loop that pursues the all too human feeling of constantly wearing oneself out without really knowing why and for whom.

Choreographer Taneli Törmä’s movement together with actor-director Anna Lipponen’s text creates a 60-minutes long poetical marathon. The spoken word sets the body in motion while the dynamics of the moving body inflates the words with a new meaning.

A parallel monologue between the two actors brings the audience step by step into a manipulative landscape.

FAKE IT UNTIL YOU MAKE IT!

Survivors is created by Taneli Törmä – LOCATION X (DENMARK) in co-operation with STUDIO TOTAL artists (FINLAND).
