Torotörö is a doubly melty sensation on the tongue. A liquid language that seeps across skins, and oozes in the gaps— a playfield, on a syrupy scale between fish and bull. It’s a bodily invitation to embrace the multiple in being human and wild through movement. Risk, delicacy and joy effervesce the physicalities between performers Kadar Khristan and Jussi Ulkuniemi in a dance of moods dissolving and surfacing. Sound performed by Riku-Pekka Kellokoski accompanies the dancers as they surrender to the rapids of fluid worlds together. Iiris Herttua’s costume design stretches the performativity into the material, while Outi Vedenpää’s sensitive light installation sways time in the performance.

This work is Kaaos Company’s latest collaboration with the working group.
