Intertwining sacred dances and ritualistic movements with contemporary dance forms while exploring the purpose of dance within a modern societal context. It underscores the transformative influence of voice as a dynamic element of movement, while also pushing the boundaries between tradition and innovation. Contemporary homage to our dancing ancestors.

Building upon Jenna Jalonen's earlier work in "RING," HALO represents a seamless continuation of her exploration into decoding traditional dances. While RING delved into circle dances, HALO takes the journey further by delving into sacred dances and ritualistic movements that have historically been intertwined with attempts to understand and influence the natural world. Throughout history,  sacred dances served various purposes — from ensuring bountiful harvests and victory in battles to invoking rain, fertility, and ecstasy. But what is the purpose of dance now and what kind of ritual does it represent in today’s society?

Jenna Jalonen (FI/HU) is an award-winning contemporary dance maker and producer whose previous works have been part of the best European emerging choreographers selection Aerowaves. She has been examining the body’s physical boundaries while decoding the skilled body to its core. She nurtures tradition by absorbing it and reflecting on it. Rewriting it to something new.

SUB.LAB.PRO is a creative platform for contemporary dancers to expand their technical and creative capabilities through choreographic creations. The program is designed to foster a realistic appreciation of a professional company-like environment by offering a complete tool kit to sustain and nourish the dancers at the start of their career paths.
