If I Would Lose My Voice is an unforgettable dance work that reflects on the impact of human beings on the changes in our planet. It provides a provoking vision of our world, and how the actions of humans is changing nature more than ever before.
The work was the first free-field dance work on the main stage of the National Theater. Due to the corona situation, only two performances were held at the National Theater. Now our audiences will have a chance to see this massive, unique work in an unplugged version.
Critic Maria Säkö wrote in her review in Helsingin Sanomat (17.8.2020) as follows:
“Whereas many dance pieces are busy with similar kind of questions, very few dare to be as truly and concretely political in such a committed way as Kekäläinen – and without falling into the trap of daily politics. And above all, in every new piece she dares to go further than before.
If I Would Lose My Voice needs to be looked at very carefully, because it doesn’t manifest any change in its movement vocabulary, but rather reveals facts of humanity in the era of Anthropocene, transcending the individual: the need for touch, the longing of connecting, sexuality, the need for meaning, the attempt to perceive facts by grasping them.”
