FUGA

Production info

The work is based on J.S. Bach’s unfinished composition The Art of Fuga. Independent sounds, movements and acts merge in FUGA to create a polyphonic weave. The independent aspects comment on each other, reflect each other and move alongside each other. FUGA (lat. escape) escapes solid forms and breaks out of the grip of conception. In FUGA music and motion transform the dancer’s bodies into an undefined forward going flow. The workgroup consists of dancers who have worked for Aaltokoski Company for several years.
