Pas de deux #1 – Constructing Love

In Constructing Love, the first part of the new series Pas de deux by Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop, choreographer Milla Koistinen and musician Paul Valikoski invite the audience to reflect on a reinvention of life and love.

As society continues to drift further apart, the concept of empathy is currently experiencing a renaissance. The ability to empathize is regarded as the central tool with which to fight the rage exerted against the supposed Other, yet it is also seen as the danger inherent in sentimental depoliticization. In June 2019, radialsystem launched New Empathies, a series of programmes spanning two years, consisting of concerts, installations, choreographies, workshops, and discussions.
