SLOW DANCE

Silent country village, modern dance, a horse and the garden.

Dance is work and work is dance. This is the philosophy of dancers Saila Reiniö and Jukka Ristolainen. As young freshly graduated dance artists they moved to the countryside 2002 and started to organize One Day -dance happening for the local audience. They thought to stay maybe one or two years, but now it has changed to a total new lifestyle with a horse, child and slow pace of the time outside "the rat race".
