It was the opening night of Helsingin Juhlaviikot as well as a series of concerts under the name of Reddress: an actual red dress designed by the wonderful designer Aamu Song!
Pekka Kuusisto has curated the program which includes music, dance and speeches, each artist performing inside the dress!
The thing that makes it really unique is that the audience is also a part of the dress, sitting and lying under wraps in its' huge hem!
Oh the sweet feeling of warmth and closeness, music, lights and total relaxation!
Who says we have to sit stiff in concerts?!
I love people who think outside the box and act on it, giving us new perspectives, new experiences, questioning the old, dusty ways of our behaviour. I want more of that!!
It was such a wonderful experience altogether, go see if you have a chance, it's on until Tuesday in Kaapelitehdas, two different performances each evening!
I'll let the pictures do the talking:
The director and choreographer of the Reddress, a sweet friend of mine, doing the mermaid-pose, beautiful!
And the artists of the evening:
Sin Cos Tan!
Thank you Minna, I enjoyed enormously!!
