Choreography: Jarkko Mandelin

Gravity is a high-paced movement piece for eight dancers, which follows the continuum of choreographer Jarkko Mandelin’s extremely physical and movement-focused dance works. Aggressive manipulation of pace and rhythm, stills, jammed twitching movement and crashes that quickly halt acceleration work as qualitative tools that create the sense of gravity. The choreography is built around the falling, dropping, and spinning of weight, the continuum of movement energy.
