Flokki consists of dance makers Jukka Tarvainen, Elina Räisänen, Saara Junttila, Elina Häyrynen, Raimonda Gudaviciute, and Rea-Liina Brunou, and filmmaker and sound designer Miki Brunou. Our name is a variation from the English word ‘flock’. Birds that fly and forage in a flock have a very intelligent system of synchroniced moving and working as a team. No one in a flock can avoid of becoming a leader at times and everyone has to take equal responsibilty of the community. And that is also where we are aiming at in our work as a collective.
Previously Flokki has done a contemporary dance piece called Harsianen, zombi ja ylväs pyy – Tarinoita kesästä. They worked with the piece in Saari Residency of Kone Foundation June 2010. Premiere for Harsiainen, Zombi ja Ylväs Pyy was 6.11.2010 at Kutomo, Turku.
Premiere of Ekho was 18th of January 2013 at Kutomo, Turku. The piece is partly produced by The Regional Dance Center of Western Finland.
