REvenge - Paula Tuovinen / On the next time - Teemu Määttänen



REvenge is a partly documentary solowork about - revenge. In order to study this theme, Tuovinen combines speech, movement and improvisation with mobbing letters and middle aged women. Despite the bitterness of the theme, REvenge is also flavoured with irony and humour, the two trademarks of Tuovinen’s otherwise versatile choreographic style.

Paula Tuovinen (b. 1961) has worked in the Finnish dance field since the early 1980s as a dancer, choreographer and pedagogue. She has an MA in cultural anthropology, which has influenced her work as an artist. In the course of her career she has, in addition to making stage work, also directed dance films and made the choreography to a Bollywood film. In 2005 she was elected as the rector of the Theatre Academy of Finland. She is the first representative of dance art to hold this position.

On the next time
In his video work On the next time Teemu Määttänen studies the repetitions of a dancer and the kinetic memory. By repetition and variation this movie becomes a multi-layered picture of the bodily presence and its time.
