LOCATION X

Dreams for the future can aid us to live, but they can also prevent us from living the life that we really desire for. Taneli's solo is about a wake-up - a rethinking of the meaning and importance of dreams.

 

In his solo Classical Beauty the dancer-choreographer Taneli Törmä (FI/DK) is hunting for one of his dreams - to dance his way to become a classical ballet male soloist. This dream is something that he could not have done alone anymore. In the solo, he needs to modify his dream in order for it to come true.

 

Taneli graduated from the Finnish National Ballet School in 2005. Sometimes it takes 11 years or more to get the courage to face the actual tools to fulfill the dream - so that the dream is finally true to yourself.

 

Taneli Törmä performs his dream humorously, but with a profound honesty
