I am still struggling for the cause of movement; A story told through movement never comes to an end. Movement has a secret which keeps you in its grip. Everything has its starting point in the birth of movement, from the moment you find a movement that feels meaningful. It's self-explanatory. The starting point of movement is in idea or internal feeling.

Petri Kekoni Company is celebrating its 10 year anniversary in Suvilahti. The year 2017 is also choreographer Petri Kekoni's 20th anniversary as an artist. In his work Kekoni avoids following the "hot trends" of contemporary dance. Original, both rich in form and primitive movement language combined with strong visual presence have established him as an significant choreographer in Finland.
