DEEP SKIN dance piece is a creation for two musicians and four performers. Starting point of the creation was to research the following question: what happens when you make yourself available? Dance piece is a dialog between sound and movement worlds that celebrate visibility. The audience may as well go through their own point of views or notions of their own visibility. Choreography of the piece becomes alive through performers’ instant choices and phrase composition in a relation to sound, audience and unknown. Inspiration for the piece started to arise piece by piece after Nadja Pärssinen worked as an assistant for a blind person.
