The Days invites the audience to share an encounter with two exceptional Finnish dancers Maria Nurmela and Ville Oinonen. Nurmela and Oinonen commissioned London based choreographer Theo Clinkard, to create a work that resulted in engendering a world of ever shifting negotiations, complex feelings and comic disconnection and constructed from a singular physical concept that sustains throughout the work. Caught inan impossible loop of absurd and heartfelt exchanges, the performers journey takes the form of a lifetime shared in this compelling performance about care, resilience and the desire for connection.
The project (conceived by Nurmela and Oinonen) is more than a simple performance. The Days seeks to engage with local communities and diffuse the hierarchies between different bodies as performers and movers. On stage, Nurmela and Oinonen are joined by two honoured community participants, a man and a woman aged over 65-years, in each city of performance.
