How do we read images and create meaning in the spaces between the images? How does the meaning of what we see change, when the order of the images or actions or the information surrounding them changes?
Choreographer Johanna Nuutinen’s new creation OPIA dives eyes first into the ever present questions relating to looking, being looked at, how do we perceive form and how do we form meaning from what we see. No one person sees the meaning of a thing in the same way as the person next to them.
OPIA explores the world behind the gaze through virtuoso dance, surrealistic space design and captivating soundscape. The work takes the shape of a triptych where the three parts can be seen as separate works or as one whole.
