Muistikuvia – Recollections
Recollections is Valtteri Raekallio's latest performance, created in collaboration with dancer Annamari Keskinen and violinist Meriheini Luoto. The intergenerational piece examines a person, you or me, or at least me, posing the question of where are the boundaries between memories, fiction and narration?
Recollections is an autofictional hybrid performance in which childhood, an imaginary shared history, unrealized futures and confronting one's own mortality form a framework for an interchange between three artists.
The performance stretches the boundaries of truth, creating a fragmentary world of the unconscious; our memories are deceitful and subject to interpretation, yet we still construct our identities through storylines that are based on them.
“You can't empty that well; that well is connected to
the deep waters in which we as children played, and there
in the endless depths of the ocean, were born our dreams of flying”
- Claes Andersson, trans. Thomas Freundlich
