Description One Day and One Night is a new version of a solo created for dancer Sari Lakso in 2005, carrying the same title.

The initial choreography was inspired by the colorful paintings of the artist Nanna Susi expressing irrational and surrealist inner landscapes. In the new version the colorfulness is converted into more reduced scenery. While the original choreography’s structure based on the music by the composer Uljas Pulkkis is being respected, the costumes, light design and scenery enjoy a renewed look.

The refreshed movement themes, where the initiation point has been the dancers personality and body, creates the choreography a new direction: a cartoonlike dramaturgy where the dancer travels through different fictive landscapes creating a playful type gallery of a single man.
Other Information The work was premiered as a part of a double-bill, which consisted of the works One Day, One Night and Prayers.
