Description Meadow, meadow, meadow is a triptych by choreographers Elina Pirinen and Maria Saivosalmi, French-Palestinian performance artist Jassem Hindi and Irish theatre artist Ruairí Donovan.

A dance that is an axe for the frozen sea inside us, relentlessly making ritual objects for a tribe that does not exist, a lingering sentence on one horse and seven hearts, a fanfare heralding a renewed ethos of intimacy.

Together with lighting designer Heikki Paasonen, the heralds and a surprise ensemble founded for the triptych create a delicate avalanche of peculiar bodies, voices and landscapes. The weight carried is the perception of all that is essential for the human
condition, like a slow storm in the solar plexus.
