"Humanity in the guts of gravity"

PREMIERE 8.-10.10.2020 Espoo City Theatre

Trampoline-wizard Rauli Dahlberg is joined by the award-winning choreographer Jarkko Mandelin, master of live-looping Miro Mantere and visionary light designer Jere Mönkkönen in creating contemporary circus from another dimension.


O'DD is an adventure story of humanity in the guts of gravity. It plays with the laws of physics until they bend and one can break free from their grasp. Through wordless acrobatic movement and object manipulation, the essence of humanity is altered, the individual is cut into layers and imagined anew.


This is a new kind of direction for contemporary circus, its future and dreamed reality. O’DD boldly leads us to the transient world of being human.
