We are celebrating the première of Anu Sistonen’s new piece Mood(s) this week in Luxembourg. It can be seen in the Grand Théâtre on 29th / 30th November 2016.
Finish choreographer Anu Sistonen is a regular at the Grand Théâtre and Mood(s) is her fourth creation to be presented here. Spanning a career of 15 years, her creative journey has been marked by a deep attention given to the interaction between choreographic language and musical language.
Her latest creation Mood(s) is a piece that will combine and integrate the ebb and flow of human emotions. Sistonen’s choreography is passionate, sensitive and moving and features five dancers, singer Stephany Ortega and percussionist Sven Kiefer. Evoking our loneliness and moments of life together, it works towards a succession of phases of individuality and of collective expansion. Sistonen found inspiration for Mood(s) in the works of photographer Miikka Heinonen, in contemporary vocal music and in the fascinating instrument, the marimba.
