With Uoma, Alpo Aaltokoski wants to take part of a question about dancer’s age. In performing art and exceptionally in dance there is no age variant and age is not seen on stage. Often people things that older cannot create new. Aaltokoski wants to emphasize that it depends on person itself. Sometimes thoughtsneed time to work. 

In dance change from age affiliate strongly on movement, because often persons movement becomes slower in older age. Slowdown is no need to see as lower quality, but as change with new dimensions. With life history person often sees more connections between things, which also influence of being and movement.

Uoma is part III, IV and V of Alpo Aaltokoski’s series of works on the themes of death and surrender. The first two parts of the series had premiere in the fall 2020 under the title Closed Doors.
