Mikko Kallinen

Animated dance film reaches towards “familiarly alien” athmospere. It approaches choreographic concept from a very wide perspective. All movement is considered as grand choreographic network, where everything is interconnected. All moving characters and abstract architectural constructions of the network have their specific choreographic profile and ways to interact with the other aspects of the network. Robotic choreography is influenced by mechanic and organic beings from the nature. The film approaches the concept of “natural movement” more by rhythmic or geometric than textual means.
