Myths

Osku Leinonen's performance Myths combines video projection (by Liudmila Kartoshkina) with enchanting butoh dance. In creating a performance by merging experiences, memories and interactions, Leinonen's piece reaches for the silence and clarity needed to open up an inner landscape. Performer and audience are drawn together in the contemplation of timeless questions – Who am I? What is it to be human? – and memories themselves become myths.
