In Milla Koistinen’s new production “Magenta Haze”, the performers engage in play with large, colourful objects, yielding a choreography of subtle tipping points between distance and proximity, solidarity and alienation, fragility and strength, and the individual and the group. Created by visual artist Sandra E. Blatterer, the inflated objects take on different forms, meanings, and associations as the performers explore their materiality, haptics, and sonic qualities. “Magenta Haze” is presented as part of the collaboration :LOVE: between Tanzfabrik and Radialsystem presented in Radialsystem’s spaces. The initiative “Radialsystem ♥ Tanzfabrik” fosters cooperation between the two institutions specifically to improve the conditions of presentation by dancemakers.

With “Magenta Haze”, premiered at Dance House Helsinki on 27 October 2022, Koistinen explores group dynamics and individual behaviour within a collective, as well as communal ecstasy and collective joy. Inspired by the idea that ecstasy is a state in which we step out of ourselves and move to a “different” place, Koistinen invites the audience to move around the space and observe the choreography.

The collaboration aims to improve the labor and presentation conditions of dance professionals in Berlin beyond their individual institutional contexts.
