Alpo Aaltokoski’s captivating work “Together” at the Finfringe festival in May.

This year, people in Turku will be able to get to know the work of choreographer Alpo Aaltokoski, praised by critics and appreciated by the public. In the fall, Aaltokoski will make a choreography for Aurinkobaletti, but before that, Aaltokoski’s work “Together” will be seen at the Finfringe festival in May. The premiere of the piece was in 2010, but last year it was reinterpreted by a new generation of dancers. The central idea of the work, traveling together, is still very relevant after more than ten years.

Once you have stepped into a deep stream together, it leaves its mark on you. No matter how you might try to rip it up and cast it away, the connection will not be broken. There are two, both in tandem and apart. Side by side, at the same time somewhere else. Each is caught in the other, even if one travels alone to the other side of the planet.

Alpo Aaltokoski’s beloved choreography Together is making a return to the stage, this time with a new generation of dancers reinterpreting the work that first premiered in 2010. Along with the most important Finnish dance festivals, Together has visited Mexico, Nicaragua and Italy. The piece has been characterized as a classic Finnish art dance duet.
