Tuntu – Dance Theater Auraco (Finland)

Tuntu – Dance Theater Auraco (Finland)

A 2017 creation

What does dance sound like, what does dance feel like? Steps and rhythms, air waves, touch, breath, the rustle of clothes and the floor – what all does the bodily sensation entail without the dominance of visual perception! The main target audience is 0 to 6-year-old visually impaired children with an adult, but the performance is suitable for others too. Audience members with normal vision can try out different visibility limiting glasses and scarves during the performance
