  • A dance documentary that explores the work of internationally acclaimed choreographer and dancer Tero Saarinen, granting the viewer a unique impression of this extraordinary artist’s creative process. Featuring stunningly captured dance sequences and behind-the-scenes material from around the globe, the film brings to light how Saarinen’s dance works evolve from an idea or concept into a finished performance. In a turbulent world that fetishizes technology, change and constant online availability, Saarinen embraces a philosophy of awareness, presence in the moment and centered physicality.

    Director’s Statement: Tero Saarinen is a contemporary choreographer who believes in the power of dance in itself. His dance works are always highly visual and poetic, but his way of working and communicating is very straightforward and approachable. At the center of his practice is the belief that dance can touch something ancient; something timeless; something deep at the core of our shared humanity. This is a documentary with no ‘talking heads’ – Saarinen, his dance and the moving image speak for themselves.
