Original music for a short dance film.

Directed by Maria Laitila & Marja Haapakangas.

Kelo is one of the dance videos in the project Luonnotila – The Shape of Nature. Each dance video has its own unique world. The project creates space for bodily communication between contemporary dance, video art, sound art and nature. It is a trek by two artists, a journey in nature in a search of places that have an impact which makes one to stop. Places that allow one to encounter with their inner and outer worlds. Kelo is a speech for and of nature.

Kelo was filmed in the Kostomuksha Nature Reserve in Russia in March 2020.
