Dance performance ‘Blackpool’ takes the audience on a journey to the tough world of competitive ballroom dancing and reveals the rugged everyday life to be found behind the glamour. The performance smells like self-tanning lotion and rasps like a suede sole shoe brush. Old wounds that have already healed are reopened, poked fun at and shared, uncensored, with the audience. Choreographers Milla Virtanen and Jaakko Toivonen are both former Finnish national ballroom dance champions and experiences from their ballroom dance…

‘Dark Side of the Mime’ by Teatteri Takomo explores the grotesque like nothing else. It mixes together clowning with classic pantomime, porn, splatter, and violence. In its core lies the foundation of our common culture and it’s taboos – we simultaneously gasp with horror and tremor with laughter because we all know we’re seeing the same things, even though the images are conjured up using only gestures. This is possible since we all have a dark side and Dark Side…
