Marjo & Timo will jump into the unknown with their new performance concept Tango Impuso where music and the movement are both created in the moment. This project is created together with two masters of music improvisation: Marko Puro & Tapani Heikinheimo.
We are very happy to announce that Kiukkarainen's new tangotheatre performance Ultimo will have its premiere in the beginning of March 2017. The ensemble of that piece will be Gonzalo Orihuela (director), Marjo (performer, musician), Timo (performer, musician), and Harri Kuusijärvi (musician).
During the next years Kiukkarainen will participate in EU funded project in collaboration with artist groups from five different countries. Check the news here.
Marjo & Timo have a one-month artistic residence in Berlin in April. During the residence Kiukkarainen starts to create new dance material, music and manuscript for their upcoming production named Ultimo.
