A new work by Susanna Leinonen who has been an artistic director of the Full Moon Dance Festival in Finland! A story of female body, a target of hatred and loathing, being uncompromising and resistant

About the performance

Nasty is a new work of the Finnish choreographer Susanna Leinonen, who is receiving great attention in Europe nowadays. Nasty is a strikingly topical work that centers on the expectations, limitations and attacks targeted at female bodies. It is Susanna Leinonen’s 18th choreographical work. The piece has received rave reviews and toured so far in six countries.

**The piece includes loud noises, flashing lights and somewhat intensive scenes that may be triggering. Not recommended for the children.

Intention of the Choreographer

The performance explores physical limits of the human bodies and delves into how the female body is structured under the people’s ceaseless gazes, conflicting demands and expectations. Through this work, Susanna Leinonen reveals daily cruelty inflicted on the female body represented all the women including that of hers. Highly trained, the female body in this production has been designed to be a bent and creaking machine and to perfectly draw on its potential.

하이라이트 동영상
  • There are plenty of familiar elements of course: her incredibly considered and distinctive movement language, executed with unfailing attention to detail, as well as the highly and consistently talented dancers, the gorgeous visuals and the first class creative team. And yet, I have never seen her come out with anything quite as outspoken as this. The effect is entirely refreshing.

  • Nasty protects our right to keep our secrets and deftly side steps the soap box to powerfully address the issue of feminism and women’s rights. What a dead place the world would be without mystery, without darkness, without the subconscious. In an atmosphere of fearfulness, Nasty’s complexity and depth of feeling create a sense of freedom, it holds space for the audience as we find it in ourselves to face up to the unknown within.

  • It is utterly brilliant and undoubtedly one of the finest contributions to the debate on women’s right to self-determination.
