Kulovalkea is the Finnish wildfire, that eats its way through the landscape. The uncontrollable and meaningless force that leaves nothing behind but a blank canvas. Kulovalkea is a tribute to the loss of meaning and a circus shaped argument for the value of the unnecessary. The performance is created by a young and talented ensemble from Finland and co-produced by Dynamo Workspace. Through the dreamy landscape, playful details and rhythmic movement, an unbroken chain of fragmented scenes help create a universe both absurd and reviving, playful and entertaining.
Acrobatics, object manipulation and contemporary dance morph together and create an evocative space, where not all is as it seems and everything can be turned upside down. In a world that idolizes the measurable as the meaningful, Kulovalkea defies all logic, feeds curiosity and challenges the rational mind.
