Virpi Pahkinen Deep Time

Four years have passed since Virpi Pahkinen last stood on our stage, but this November we longingly welcome her back: for a plunge into the infinite depths of time.


Biljetter & info


On November 24th it is time for the first ever performance of Virpi Pahkinen’s latest piece, “Deep Time”.

An iconic serenity rests over the stage, over the audience. Sand flows through the hourglass; seconds pass, centuries pass. In one sudden swoop, the curtain disappears and behind it, a chaos of bodies is revealed: a writhing, churning mass, illuminated by a stroboscopic shimmer…

Deep Time is one of Pahkinen’s largest projects so far. Apart from performing in it herself, she is accompanied by five dancers, a coloratura soprano and a percussionist, to collectively interpret and depict what happens when that which is ancient and mysterious meets the new world ideals: the digital and technological reality.
