BRIGHT SHADOW

MINNA TERVAMÄKI / KIMMO POHJONEN

BRIGHT SHADOW

Pohjonen’s primeval energy contrasts with the sensitivity and intensiveness of Tervamäki, as the audience is treated to a battle of wills between these two charismatic performers. The greatest power is found in tranquillity and balance.
 

Minna Tervamäki and Kimmo Pohjonen began their collaboration at the FNOB in 2011. They dazzled their audiences and went on to create Bright Shadow at the Oulu Music Fes- tival in 2013 and had its German premiere at Köln Philharmonie in 2014.

"What do you get when two of your top of the line items? Double Awesome! It could have been the other way  but the accordion wizard Kimmo Pohjonen and ex - National Ballet star dancer Minna Tervamäki unlikely duet with more than two artists encounter. It is a perfect synthesis.”

Jussi Tossavainen, Helsingin sanomat 5.4.2014

 

“Bright Shadow is a disturbingly stunning mix of Dadaistic onomatopoeia and vocal percussion, classical ballet and modern dance, light show and sound collage.”

Kölnische Rundschau, Susanne Schrammn
