“I wanted it to be far from all that social difficulty, so that you can be alone and in any place where you do not need to encounter other people and at any time.”

Both Liisa Pentti’s Jeux – re-imagined and Rea-Liina Brunou’s Pedestrian Ballet premiered at Kutomo in Turku in October-November of 2016.
