Description Can dance capture the essence of a close friendship? Can we respond to dance with the same warmth we feel towards a dear friend? A Good Friend is a duet performed and choreographed by Kati Korosuo and Eliisa Erävalo. Humorously documenting a long friendship, it attempts to portray the experience of this close relationship through choreography. The artists use movement to express generosity, selflessness and vulnerability, while also examining friendship as a method and ideological framework. To see and be seen, to share and to accept all – even those moments of loneliness and imperfection.
Other Information The work was premiered as a part of a double-bill, which consisted of the works Hyvä Ystävä – A Good Friend and Thank You For Your Love.
