Sonja Jokiniemi’s new choreography Creeping Thistle is a performance project initiated by two Finnish dance artists, Inka-Leea Hakkarainen and Ville Nylén. The work is a dystopian picnic where painting, bodies and materials immerse into each other. Liquid and slime blur forms and identities and smudge binaries.
Creeping Thistle premieres in Sotku Theatre, Kuopio (FI) on 7 and 8 December 2018 and continues to Generaattori, Kajaani (FI) on 18 and 19 January 2019.
The performance is co-produced by Regional Dance Centre of Eastern Finland and Routa Company.
