In At On­ce, in Hel­sin­ki coreographer Carl Knif turns his ga­ze again towards the hu­man being and the enig­ma­tic nature of li­fe. The the­me of the work is a mi­rac­le as part of to­day’s world­view. The work exa­mi­nes the pos­si­bi­li­ty of sud­den ra­di­cal chan­ge th­rough four in­ter­lin­ked li­fe stories. The work fea­tu­res six dan­cers and two ac­tors.    

Sin­ce the start the com­pa­ny in 2012 it has ri­sen to the fo­ref­ront of Finnish dan­ce with blend of high­ly re­cog­ni­zab­le nar­ra­ti­ves and vir­tuo­so dan­cing. The the­mes of the pie­ces are frank, per­so­nal and fear­less­ly ba­re and yet mer­ci­ful­ly poe­ti­cal. The st­raight­for­ward na­tu­re of the work, which ari­ses from a pro­found ar­tis­tic sen­si­ti­vi­ty and a st­ri­king­ly well conceived vi­sua­li­ty, ma­kes the pie­ces memorable. The work of Carl Knif’s pie­ces ha­ve tou­red in 10 count­ries.


The visit is being produced in collaboration with Oulu Theatre.
