Jasmin Vardimon
Pinocchio

The work is an adaptation of the original book ‘The Adventures of Pinocchio’ written by Carlo Collodi in 1883, Italy. It was written at a time when Italian society was philosophically and morally engaged in a very important question about the nature of education; could peasants be educated? Could their children go to school and become ‘real boys’, or were they destined to be merely work force -‘donkeys’.
Unlike the Disney version of Pinocchio which portrays a journey to become a real boy, achieved by telling the truth, a message driven home by the film, I find in the original nineteenth century Italian tale a much more complex journey of challenges and discoveries. This journey leads him to realise what it means to be human, understanding and recognising human feelings and emotions in himself and in others. This classic tale, in a way of questioning, allows us to explore our assumptions of what it means to be human.
Throughout creating this interpretation of the story, I was mainly interested in the imaginative way it can be retold, constructing the characters with the performers and rediscovering the tale through them. One of the exciting things we explored with the set designer and the production team was the creation of a stage that also functioned as a marionette theatre, making the interactive set part of the choreography. It was an exciting journey of challenges and adventures for us all, and I’m happy to share it with you.

Tero Saarinen Company
Third Practice

Flagships of their respective genres in Finland and leading forces of the European dance and baroque music, Tero Saarinen Company (TSC) and Helsinki Baroque Orchestra (HeBO) join forces to find new dimensions to opera pioneer Claudio Monteverdi’s (1567- 1643) radical madrigals. Third Practice features thirteen live performers on stage. Six TSC dancers and six HeBO instrumentalists are complemented by two internationally recognized opera soloists specialized in early music: Tenor Topi Lehtipuu live on stage and the virtual avatar of Catalonian Soprano Núria Rial. The creative team of Third Practice is Choreographer Tero Saarinen, Music Director, Arranger Aapo Häkkinen, Lighting Designer Eero Auvinen, Projection Designer Thomas Freundlich, Costume Designer Erika Turunen, Sound Designer Marco Melchior and Choreographer’s Assistant Henrikki Heikkilä.

Saarinen is known for insightful fusions of the classical and the contemporary – such as his praised The Rite interpretation HUNT (2002). Many of Saarinen’s best-known creations also feature inventive use of live music: Borrowed Light (2004) with early music ensemble The Boston Camerata and recent collaborations with Esa-Pekka Salonen (Morphed, 2014), The Finnish National Opera and Ballet (Kullervo by Jean Sibelius, 2015) as well as Susanna Mälkki and The LA Phil (Zimmermann Trio, 2018). In Third Practice Saarinen once again creates a gripping choreography combining dance with live music, strong and exceptional performers, innovative sound, lighting, video and costume design – intertwined with multi-layered and emotionally gripping themes.

Transit by Tero Saarinen
Transit - Asian Premiere

Tero Saarinen‘s latest large-scale choreography is set to Stonework (2015), Drifts (2016–17) and Water Atlas (2018) by composer Sebastian Fagerlund. The trilogy is combined with the spatial sound design of Tuomas Norvio, known for his imaginative work in electronic music.

The stage design centers on a dialog between an animated film installation by visual artist duo IC-98 and the lighting design by Minna Tiikkainen. This is the first time IC-98’s internationally praised work is seen in performing arts. The black and white video is based on material hand-drawn by pencil. Costume designer Teemu Muurimäki brings even more layers to the work as the dancers in a sense shed away their skin in an effort to unveil a new future.

Transit is a Nordic co-production. Following Skånes Dansteater’s premiere season at Malmö Opera, the creation will be in Tero Saarinen Company’s own repertoire from 2021.
