Petri Kekoni Company festival in spring 2017

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. The festival will present revered works Theses of the Deed (2011) and Variations of Foreign Origin (2009). 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.
