Teini (2017)

A still from the contemporary dance performance Teini.

TEINI
Contemporary dance production

A teenager is a combination of chaos and grace, of injustice and harmony. The future of the young is the result of decisions made by earlier generations. They have been handed a world full of war and catastrophes to live in. For one year, the workgroup of Teini suggests, adapts, ponders, observes, writes, embodies, dances and builds the performance into a work that will become part of the canon of contemporary dance.

The performance gives power outside the generation that usually does most of the speaking in our society.
