Description Reflections into another light is the third part of choreographer Mia Malviniemi’s Fortune (Onni) –trilogy. The two earlier parts are Good day (Hyvää Päivää, 2008) and On this side of a shadow (Varjon tällä puolen 2011). The series focuses on different perspectives on happiness. The first part concentrated on moments of happiness found in everyday life and the second on friendship.

Reflections into another light is a dance work about love and intimate relationships. Six performers of varying ages create a life-spanning oeuvre about the relationship between a man and a woman. The three duets are a journey beginning with the innocence of first infatuations and ending in the shared moments of elderly couples. Central themes include meeting, listening and love.
