NUUA & SIRKUM POLARIS - KULOVALKEA


Kulovalkea is an old-fashioned Finnish word meaning a rapidly expanding wildfire, a metaphor to witness something visually beautiful and an opportunity to plant new trees. With ethereal ambiences and dreamy landscapes like moving paintings, the performance lays out a playground for creative movements that take the spectator to a playful and curious headspace. Through collaboration and confrontation, seemingly ordinary things turn into something unexpected and twisted.


The truth is not always what reality conveys, but more what’s dragged from our subconscious minds, dreams and visions, buried deep in our psyche... and sometimes read out loud from a cut newspaper. Kulovalkea offers an array of fragmented scenes that feed the curiosity yet defy rationality. In a world seeking meaning and awareness we want to enhance the importance of the unimportant.
