This highly cooperative work of choreographer-dancer Reetta-Kaisa Iles, musician Eero Turkka and scenographer Mirkka Nyrhinen is wrapped around the concept of pain. The artists' own aging, the challenges in bodies, the upheavals of life and the spiritual, the breathing challenges, have given their own impetus to this subject. We live in a time where there is no place for pain, we want to get rid of it, it is infused indefinitely out of our system, it is the way of our efficiency, the obstacle of our happiness.

The performance is inspired by everything silly and weird. The bimbos can be children of nature, innocent, mean, unpredictable, irrational; they can come in high heels with high voices. They can be desired and despised, simultaneously goddesses and idiots – or not.

Hybrid Momentum is a playground of movement for two dancers trying to avoid adulthood. The stage becomes a hybrid that speaks with abstract poetry of contemporary dance and raw physicality of street dance. Collaborative work by Antti Lahti and Mikko Makkonen springs from the joy of movement research and stretching the boundaries of association and self.
