Description Being Greta 2 is a choreographic script. In the piece, the performers' bodies create a playful live narrative. Being Greta 2 creates moments, when a culturally recognisable movement becomes something else, a new story, a dance.
Maija Hirvanen's solo piece Being Greta premiered at Zodiak center for new dance, Helsinki, 2007. In the original solo, all movements were adapted from cinema scenes. Being Greta 2, is a duet mutation of this solo, in which the origin of movement is turned the other way around; the performers' bodies are creating images and act as the source of reference. Further adaptations of Being Great will follow in different forms and constellations.
