Dance Theatre ERI brings to the stage of Zodiak a poetic café where
people meet one another, find themselves and their dreams. Reality becomes
a dream and humor interchanges with profound intensity in this performance
which highlights the importance of passion, different destinies, another
kind of love. Tiina Lindfors in an ingenious genderblending role crowns
this stylistically masterly and entertaining story which can easily be
read into the canon of Finnish lesbian art. Composition: Drömkvartetten.
