Missed yesterday’s Dance Talks focusing on Tero Saarinien? We’ve got you covered! Watch video of the event here. Maura Keefe, chair of the Department of Dance at the College at Brockport (SUNY) and a Scholar-in-Residence at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, led an insightful discussion on the Finnish choreographer.
The 100-year anniversary of Stravinsky’s Sacre du Printemps provided a launching off place for an investigation of Saarinen’s work. His stunning solo HUNT, performed to Stravinsky’s masterpiece will be seen at The Joyce next month, as will the dynamic group work Scheme of Things. In this video-illustrated talk, Keefe considers Saarinen’s roots as a dancer with the Finnish National Ballet and his choreographic quest to explore the dance world well beyond the borders of Scandinavia.
Take a look.
