Henri Hütt (EST) “SPHERE ISLANDS (in order to dance)”
Friday, July 6th / 17:00-18:00 / stage 2 / buy ticket
When Henri wrote to Riho about the plan of a new performance, he felt hesitation while waiting for an answer. Does father think that his son is ready creatively to find answers to the questions together?
Response came and this was not the question…
“Sphere Islands” is a trip to Henri’s and Riho’s common creative environment. The issues in between different art disciplines will be visualized through the prism of the contemporary performance space maintaining the feeling that you’re on a mystical journey. Equation “artist father – artist son” carries within it an exotic extra dimension that would remain even if their creative reference systems would be discarded. Still, “Sphere Islands” cannot escape from the poetry of stage space or cold and distant visual diversity that shapes the style.
Contemporary space + source based movement + game of planar technology = good news
