EHDOTUS DUETOKSI KAHDELLE MIEHELLE - PROPOSAL FOR A DUET FOR TWO MEN (1993/2003)

NAIS(T)EN DUETTO (2003)


10 YEARS AFTER

Sanna Kekäläinen's work Proposal for a Duet for Two Men from 1993 has now a new fresh interpretation. This piece was Jyrki Karttunen's break through as a dancer back in -93 and the performance was a hit. Today Karttunen is one of the most outstanding dancers in the Finnish dance field and now we can see his and Sanna Kekäläinen's collaboration again in this "10 Years After" version.

"Proposal" is a wonderful collaboration with choreographer Sanna Kekäläinen, musician Shinji Kanki and dancer Jyrki Karttunen. Karttunen is portraying a man who is searching for his masculine identity with great sensitivity and humour.
