Pauli Sivonen ja Arja Maunuksela: Marita Liulia
"In investigating her professional image, we have studied press clippings about her from the mid-1980s to the present day. They show her to be an artist who has pursued her career with a sense of purpose, continuously seeking new forms of expression and new audiences for her works. We have also interviewed her and studied published research on her work." Purchase this book

Swan Song

Swan Song

Swan Song (dir. Marita Liulia) & Bright Shadow (Minna Tervamäki, Pontus Sundset, Kimmo Pohjonen, Mikko Perkola). Combining dance, multimedia and live music and using video and robot cameras, this dance work directed by Marita Liulia was inspired by the career of star dancer Minna Tervamäki – and by the dying swans in ballet. Swan Song focuses on current themes of encountering the alien and of the unpredictability of life.

Minna Tervamäki and Kimmo Pohjonen began their collaboration at the FNOB in 2011. They dazzled their audiences and went on to create Bright Shadow at the Oulu Music Festival in 2013. Pohjonen’s primeval energy contrasts with the sensitivity and intensiveness of Tervamäki, as the audience is treated to a battle of wills between these two charismatic performers. The greatest power is found in tranquillity and balance.
