Description Moraine; Dances on the islets – traces on the rocks is a dance piece created in the Finnish Kvarken Archipelago, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, during summer 2012. Over a period of five weeks, Malviniemi Company worked at the following sites: Rönnskär, Molpehällorna and Svedjehamn. The piece is co-produced by the Arts Council of Ostrobothnia.

Choreographer Mia Malviniemi gained her inspiration from the area's natural environment and history as well as through interviews with local inhabitants and experts. The piece consists of five separate parts, born amongst the Kvarken seascape, islets and rocks. Moraine is a piece which brings together encounters with nature, and the history and mythical stories of the archipelago, weaving man and nature together in a multifaceted fabric. Little by little, the choreography grows from individual frozen movements into a final collective performance.
