Why The Why Mix?

Why do the hands get twisted? Why do the legs take different directions? Why does one have a tail and the others do not? Yes – and why do I see even when I don’t?

The word “why” is key to understanding and knowledge. “Mix” is a mixture. The Why Mix throws questions in the air about the meanings and interpretations of bodily movement.

The Why Mix is a geometric, thrilling, colourful and partly serious mixture of contemporary dance, mime and music. The visuality draws its inspiration from the Bauhaus style. A style where geometrical shapes and asymmetrical compositions are typical.

You are warmly welcome to enjoy The Why Mix at Annantalo or as a live stream from your home! The ticket sale for the performances, other than the live stream, is restricted to 15 pieces due to current covid-19 restrictions.

The Why Mix is a part of the Mapping – a Map on the Aesthetics of Performing Arts for Early Years project of the EU’s Creative Europe programme.

The performance is produced in collaboration with Annantalo and Pragma Helsinki.
