An important part of Dance Theatre ERI’s activity is the outreach program for seniors, bringing performances free of charge to residential homes, service houses, care centres and meeting points in South-West Finland.

For the time being, the repertoire includes the opus ”Mate in Finland”, a humorous and nostalgic dive into Finnishness. In Lassi Sairela’s miniature two ”boys of Finland” go for a charter holiday, swing around in the apeman’s tree and dwell in sweet youth memories. The dancers Toni Laakkonen and James McNamara take a fast trip into the images of a Finland that through the decades since the 1960’s has become more and more internationalized.

Duration c 15 minutes. For more information, contact Maarit Keto-Seppälä, maarit.keto-seppälä(at)
