The Old Market - BF - Theatre Seated Unreserved
Dance and Physical Theatre
Dance performance 'Blackpool' takes the audience on a journey to the tough
world of competitive ballroom dancing and reveals the rugged everyday life
to be found behind the glamour. The performance smells like self-tanning
lotion and rasps like a suede sole shoe brush. Old wounds that have
already healed are reopened, poked fun at and shared, uncensored, with the
audience. Choreographers Milla Virtanen and Jaakko Toivonen are both
former Finnish national ballroom dance champions and experiences from
their ballroom dance youth and the Blackpool Dance Festival serve as
inspiration for the work.
