Mäki & Nurmio: ÉLIANE

“It sounds like my old fridge, but it helps me think about life, and to fall asleep.”
(Anonymous comment about Éliane Radigue’s music on the Internet.)

Dance performance ÉLIANE opens the work of composer Éliane RadiqueI’Île Re-sonante, as a physical landscape in dialogue with Radique’s thinking. It invites us to think about our place in the world, and the cycle of nature; our relationship with ourselves and each other, and being in the world. It invites you to ask for change.
