Ontto harmaa tanssi is a collaboration between choreographers Anna Mustonen and Veli Lehtovaara, poet Olli-Pekka Tennilä, sound designer Tatu Nenonen and light designer Topias Toppinen. The piece is constructed around the poems of Ontto harmaa (Poesia 2016) written by Tennilä.
Ontto Harmaa Tanssi explores the margins of and connections between body and language, poetry and dance, and book and performance. The work resides in space, the forest, at sea as well as in the streets. It examines the relationship between fragments and environments, perception, and sensitivity. The performance tries to open a space for the poetry to become heard, seen, and known.
