The story of a classic duet now continues in a trio

The word ‘fraternity’ means camaraderie and friendship.  “What is the ultimate essence of fraternity? How is it seen in us, in our gestures, in our bodies?”, asks choreographer and dance artist Alpo Aaltokoski.

BROTHERS, choreographed for three male dancers, is a continuation of the voyage of discovery that began in a working process that started with the Together duet – premiered in 2010 – on the theme of making our way together.

It is about the connection between people, the profound importance of being together and, conversely, about pain of receding. In sharing and giving up the individual for the communal, something bigger emerges.
