Days Without Names
Helsinki-based choreographer and artist Maija Hirvanen will bring her latest piece Days Without Names to the Zodiak Stage between 20 and 26 November. The performance, featuring modern-day rain dances, premiered at the Baltic Circle International Theatre Festival on 14 November. The title of the performance arises from the days that were left blank in the Mayan calendar; the unknown.
The piece explores the underlying intention of dance and its power. Can dance make the rain fall? Or act as an agent in uniting people? Days Without Names is the third and independent part of Hirvanen´s trilogy Operation We, of which the first two parts were titled Our Social Democratic Bodies and For Those Who Have Time. All parts of the trilogy depict from different viewpoints the question: what unites the people of today? What is “we” made of?
