Is there anything unique, distinctive? There is, like this site-specific dance and music performance that pulsates with human warmth. In Finnish, AINUT means only, singular. A as in authentic, I as in improvised, N as in natural, U perhaps as urban, but T… T is always tanssi, dance.

As the performers enter the space, they take a moment to consider its features according to the letters in the word AINUT, but T is always dance – A, I, N, and U are defined in the moment.
