Description Marcia Farquhar is delighted to have been invited by the highly esteemed Johanna Tuukkanen to come to Finland for a performance of her acclaimed Acts of Clothing. This performance will however be altogether different and exactly the same as anything hitherto presented… It will be the same conceptually, one woman alone on a catwalk with her wardrobe spanning a lifetime and telling stories prompted by the garments. But altogether different in that Tuukkanen will present her own outfits, her own associations and above all her tales will be told mostly in Finnish, in her own language.
Other Information Concept & original performance: Marcia Farquhar. Photos: Pekka Mäki.
Supported by: Finnish National Council for Dance, Regional Dance Center of Eastern Finland and the City of Kuopio.
