Kati Raatikainen and Kaaos Company (2022)

The piece is a performance that explores the fundamentals of bodily being and encounter. The performers live in relation to space, time, gravity and each other, hanging, depending, twisting, freeing, falling, getting strange, entwined, and transforming from one form to another.

The show moves between the ground and the air using aerial acrobatics in the context of contemporary choreography and dance. The starting point of working with the body has been the rich experience of the human body and the relationship between sensations and movement with the world.

Falling Through the Disappearing Light

 Maria Nurmela (2021)

Falling Through The Disappearing Light 

is an immersive, sensory dance performance created by Finnish choreographer Maria Nurmela with an ensemble of internationally established professional artists from Finland, Germany, Aotearoa and Australia. The work's inspiration is rooted in H.C. Andersen's epic story of The Little Match Girl, published in 1845.

In this new work, the narrative is viewed from today's perspective, unpacking, fragmenting and revealing its multifaceted themes and phenomena true to current times. The performance offers its audience a multi-sensory journey of dance movement, texts, and visual and sonic designs that traverse emotive and virtuosic scopes.  From eerie sparseness to breathless physicality and hypnotic drive, a touching journey encompassing the work remains true to H.C. Andersen's intention of the original story.

Kaaos Company (2021-present)

KATRAS is an urban flock, a dance between four performers of diverse embodiments, encountering each other and their surroundings through movement, a score, spontaneity and listening. Following what emerges in the space of togetherness, the dance is always new. Co-composed from histories and the present moment, Kellokoski’s playful sound accompanies the casual suspense and timeless ease of the glimmering urban flock.

There's Nothing Old Under the Sun

The performance is an intimate meeting through a one-to-one card reading session that took place at the Helsinki Winter Gardens. The audience could ask a question or receive an open reading, through which the reader challels the botanical knowledge and visual cues of the cards, that emerged with each audience and their question. They could wander the gardens to encounter the plants that appeared in their reading.
Cards are illustrated and designed by Daniela with sound design by Riku-Pekka Kellokiski.
