Valtteri Raekallio’s evening-length dance work for six dancers, based on the Finlandia award winning novel by Laura Lindstedt, takes the audience on a breathtaking multisensory journey.

A person separated from their own life, in a post-death limbo from which there is no escape. Time has ceased to exist; the stories and movement languages of people meet and intertwine, revealing new layers of each other; joining finally into a shared communion facing the smallest common denominator of all humanity – death itself.

Valtteri Raekallio’s production for six dancers is based on the Finlandia award winning novel by Laura Lindstedt, one of Finland’s most acclaimed contemporary fiction authors. Oneiron combines site-specific performance art, a walk-through radio play, a virtuosic stage-based ensemble dance piece and communal dinner into a single evening-length experience that explores the world of the novel from multiple viewpoints, taking the audience on a stunningly physical multisensory journey.
