Description: The dance piece tells a personal story about love and the loss of it.

How does it feel to look at your own experiences from the outside like a movie, when the past flashes before your eyes like slides and scenes? What does reality look and feel like, where time is not a treadmill but an ocean; without direction, alive and undulating. Can you forget yourself, not identify yourself?

Miltä tuntuu muistaa (How it feels to remember) is a joint work of dance and video that deals with the themes of remembering, forgetting, losing and dreaming.

The work speaks with a strong voice of the artist and offers a sounding board to those who have lost loved ones and those who have had to bury and forget their own dreams. The choreographer had to bury her spouse who died of cancer at the age of 27. He made music as the artist Edorf and his one dream was to turn 30.

The show is a tribute to the life of Erik Ingebrigtsen from Ivalo, and features some of his music.

After the performance, it is possible to stay for a while to chat or write down your own moods and thoughts.

Viewer feedback:

"Thank you! It was healing."
"Thank you for this very touching performance! So pure and honest, full love."
"Yesterday's visual conversation between images and movement was perfect!"
"The experience was so powerful and unique. I have never seen a similar work."

Janita Rantanen is a dance artist from Hanko, who is gradually settling in Inari, and who wants to talk about death and deal with sadness as a manifestation of love.
