Wanna see a ridiculous dance solo? Or three political snakes dancing? In Hutiklubi you get to decide the frames for the scenes. Just yell out your deepest wishes to the four dancers and a musician, and see it come dancing true!
Hutiklubi is the first in the world to combine contemporary dance, theatre improvisation and music improvisation. The performance consists of short dance scenes that are created with the audience who provides themes, styles and qualities for the performers. Thus the audience gets to influence the continuum of the show.
Together with the performance-wise visitors (actors, dancers, musicians) the piece has already mesmerized thousands of spectators around Finland.
“How does the same dance fit so many elements: sensitivity, humor, explosive primal power, yearning… Ah!”
“I cannot remember when had I laughed this much in a contemporary dance performance.”
