Holidays. Do you know where the annually celebrated holidays originate from? Why are they celebrated? What have they become in the present consumer society? Is the colourful December bustle sufficient for people not to feel themselves lonely and abandoned?
Fear of being followed. What would happen if you are observed not via a camera somewhere afar, but here and now, in your own room? How to get rid of fear? Do you expect a knight on a white horse would save you or would dyou face the challenge on your own?
You don’t like what happens in the real world, but prefer to dream about your ideal one. Do you accept the reality or escape into a fantasy?
I invite you to ponder on these themes. If you are tired of thinking, then come and enjoy movement and lovely jazz rhythms
I began my dance journey in Rada Dance Theatre where I obtained a strong basis of classical ballet, character and jazz dance. After finishing the dance school I became interested in contemporary dance, took classes in ETA Dance School, Estonian Dance Academy, and various workshops. Since childhood I have been dreaming about becoming a dance teacher – and luckily this dream is fulfilled! At the moment I am captivated by different jazz dance styles and forms. I love jazz music which was the main source of inspiration for my production. I want to share this love with you!

What happens if two different phenomena meet? This is a production of something that is always repeated and still special. Both solstice and love have always contained something mysterious, joyous and sad. Ancient has always met something from the present. The same in this production which combines the elements of modern and traditional dance to see and show both from a new and unusual perspective.
Liise-Marie was active in dance already at the age of four. She began her studies in Kaie Kõrb Ballet Studio, but after 8 years there she continued her dance journey in dance ensemble Sõleke where is is dancing also now. “Do everything as if you were a great artist!”
