co-Rotation2

Mikko Kallinen

The theme and the structure of 'co-Rotation2' are derived from various aspects of rotation. The original stage choreography has been recreated for video in close co-ordination with a moving camera. The dancer and the cinematographer – the second dancer – are striving for rhythmic coherence in their dialogue. The dancer's movements explore the universality of the body's rotational potential. The quality of movement reaches for the athletic, with a lot of limb-directed movements with some similarities to early futuristic art.
