Swan Song is a death practice and a gesture of recreation performed by ten dancers. Here they look inwards and meet their pain bodies, where generational and transgenerational leftovers are prominent. Here they create a ritual of letting go, excavating space for new beginnings through their concrete corporeal and ghost bodies. The world created resembles a liminal dream-like space where meanings are ambiguous and ever-evolving. Together they create a community that calls ancestral spirit guides in the quest for healing.
Swan Song is part of Annamari Keskinen's ongoing performance series called Between the not yet and the already no more.
