A smell tells me about a rotten lemon lying on the table. When I touch it I can feel my finger piercing its soft surface. I notice how little mould particles separate from the lemon and shine in the sun rays coming from the window. I sense a little lift in my spine, the feeling of floating softness expands itself through my body. For a moment I'm hovering with the dust.
Keltanen is a dance piece and an installation. The piece relates sensory and synaesthetic experiences. Keltanen creates different sensory transpositions and surfaces: visible sound and colourful movement. The work draws out a world where the sensory events happen through different movements, word-sounds, creatures and lights.
Movement, sound, poetry and the rya fabrics in the space are in a dialogue together.
