Description The piece is inspired by big machinery halls, welding and mechanically functioning machines. The movements are angular, abrupt, all the time turning and repeating themselves. The dancers are like factory workers, doing their job as best as they can. The dancers can also be seen as small parts of a larger machine. The forging and rythmical music forms the basic framework of the piece.
Other Information The work was premiered by the special education class of Helsinki Dance School. The work had a revival premiere by Gruppen Fyra on July 28, 2000 at Full Moon Dances festival in Pyhäjärvi.
