Tero Saarinen Company: Morphed

Part of Summertime

Witness a band of seven men seduce, challenge and swagger in the UK premiere of this striking dance work. Themes such as masculinity, change and sensuality are explored through Tero Saarinen’s internationally praised choreography.

With movement ranging from brutally aggressive to meditatively soft and minimalistic, Esa-Pekka Salonen's emotionally provocative music is a powerful source of inspiration. Ropes sway to the dynamism of the dancers bodies as part of the set and lighting design by Saarinen’s long-time collaborator, Mikki Kunttu. Costumes are designed by fashion designer Teemu Muurimäki.

Tero Saarinen Company, founded by the Finnish dance artist and choreographer Tero Saarinen, is considered one of Finland’s leading dance companies having captivated audiences in over 40 countries.
