Description Closing Time is a dance theatre solo about a summer day – and evening – that don’t quite go as planned. The hard-suffering, hard-partying main character is the archetypal Finnish guy, desperately trying to maintain his dignity and optimism while navigating a haze of alcohol and failed romantic escapades. With its laconic humour and distinctly Finnish sensibility, the work is a tragicomic but all too real slice of nightlife under the northern stars. The work is accompanied by the evocative retro tones of Finnish popular dance music from decades past.
Dancers Owens, Neil (2013)
