Dry Storm is a new performance piece by students from Aalto ARTS and the Theatre Academy at Uniarts Helsinki. The production features 6 performers and the work of four students focusing on costume design, lighting design, sound design, and choreography.
The production addresses some abstract themes surrounding dryness and change in the human body. According to the organizers, “The work arises from fragmented changes in the body, created by embodied reflections from the environment. It rattles through the materialization of dryness, into hybrid bodies that in their multi directionality loosely connects anywhere and everywhere.”
Dry Storm will premiere next Wednesday, 7.2, at Kallio Stage, and will have six additional shows the week following. Tickets and additional showtimes are available here. Tickets purchased in advance online are slightly cheaper.
