Non Linear - JÄTKÄSAARI 1.10.-10.10.2015

Non Linear is a long-term site specific project, where original concept will be modified according to the new space and environment. First performed in march 2014 in Suvilahti Kattilahalli, now 2. part will have premiere 1.10. in Jätkäsaari Harbour area.

The structure of the work is based on the spatial coexistence and temporal layering of five performance stages. The work is active for approximately 90 minutes, during which time the audience is free to stroll in or out. The viewing direction of the stages is not predefined. Instead, the choreography is designed so that events can be observed from multiple angles. I feel that it is not necessary to guide the audience to a certain order in viewing the various stages. However, the starting and ending sequence is designed according to its own logic; it is as if an invisible thread connected the stages; they need each other, communicating through the space.

An important part of the piece is the choice of the viewer ­– and hence the individuality of each viewing. I want to encourage the spectator to take the decision into their own hands, as they may need to choose between two or more sections of the piece. Should I follow this development, or move on to the next? Let your intuition guide you! Thanks to the repeating structures of the work, an interrupted theme may resurface from another direction, in an altered form. Besides, life is always about choices. You can't have everything.

"With his Non-Linear dance mass, choreographer Petri Kekoni awakens the viewer's concrete and spiritual sense of touch... the experience lingers on the retina and in the body long after the performance."
- Minna Tawast / Teatteri ja tanssi (Theatre & Dance magazine)
