Description Choreographer Aaltokoski interprets the Okon Fuoko ballet composition in the light of SoMe phenomena. Aaltokoski equates Okon Fuoko’s story to today’s selfie culture.

”Internet is the horn of plenty of wishes in which we can build the ideal partner for ourselves or try ourselves to become one. This is not, however, a phenomenon only characteristic to our time: since centuries people have projected their dreams to various images and artificial constructions.”
Other Information Finnish composer Leevi Madetoja’s (1887-1947) ballet composition Okon Fuoko was completed in 1927.
