"T urn the page" brings five performers on stage to explore diaries, letters and pictures and the documentary traces left behind by five other lives. Out of these they try to create "ideal biography". Through the stories, they explore the strategies and mechanisms of self- narration and thus throw questions of self- construction, self-presentation and the ingredients for a successful thing perceived as life.

An absurd and disturbing story about well-to-do house wife who wants to hire a young woman called Hilda, more to serve as her fascinating possession than a maid. This sadistic dialogue between the lady and the husband of Hilda draws out twisted picture of human obsession, neuroses and fears. Hilda herself is never seen.

Premiere: January 22nd 2011, Zodiak, Cable factory, Helsinki, Finland

Satu Tuomisto's new choreography sets the table with a feast of fierce dance, flirtatious Finnish tunes, adult games, big hopes and a pile of broken taboos. The music is composed and performed by ex-rap artist turned grown-up singer-songwriter Mariska, accompanied by her band Pahat Sudet. Four dancers deliver an electric performance with the ever-energetic Mariska and her band. The old factory hall Pannuhalli fills up with dance, music, singing and talking. And at times the silence falls.
