In Superborea three traditions meet: a modern composition for baroque
instruments, music from a baroque opera, and the language of modern
dance. To make it a whole, lights, video projections and electronic
sound design are added.
The components are a new composition by Juha T. Koskinen, a selection Instrumentation
of dances and aria fragments from the opera Les Boréades by
Jean-Philippe Rameau, and in the coreography and dance of Janne
Marja-aho and Kaisa Torkkel. Everything Juha T. Koskinen has composed
for this work is a dialogue with the music of Rameau; partly it still
recognisable as baroque music, partly it has gone through a
metamorphosis to 21st century musical language.
