An ensemble piece by and with Virpi Pahkinen. World
premiere 24-26 November 2017 Dansens Hus, Stockholm

Sculptural movement and magnetic fluidity. The renowned and award winning choreographer and dancer Virpi Pahkinen is back with a new ensemble in the full length piece Deep Time.

An iconic calm is resting over the stage. The hourglass sieves seconds and centuries. Deep Time moves in the archaeology of dance and music, as well as in its vibrating now. From the melancholic sounds of the bronze horns and Hildegard von Bingen’s monophonic song, to the heavy buzz of electronic clouds of drones mixed with a bat's previously unheard high-pitched siren calls. Deep Time unfreezes the core of time and turns it into spectral spirals; time expands in a distant nebula. Virpi Pahkinen comes together with five dancers, a coloratura soprano and a percussionist to make an esoteric interpretation of what happens in the encounter between what is mythically ancient and the new digital life ideal. With a delicate soprano voice in looped layers and dancing drones, Pahkinen’s ensemble dives into the infinite depth of time.
