In Whirl the young choreographers Krišjānis Sants and Erik Eriksson bring together their keen interests about body in movement, research of traditions and new way of perception.
Building on rhythmic structures of folk melodies and one single movement common in traditional dances of many nations, Krišjānis and Erik bring pure physicality in focus and create a picture of perpetual movement of body in space and time.
Spectators are invited to leave behind the position of onlookers and become collaborators in this performance. The artists propose a new mode of perception where the perceiver is a part of what is being perceived.
