Compañía Kaari & Roni Martin: KILL Carmen

© Janne Mikkilä


MODERN CARMEN PLAYS WITH DEATH
Helsingin Sanomat 30.8.2015, Hannele Jyrkkä
 

Come to see her who destroys, devastates, makes one plunge into madness! Tears happiness, takes one’s property, ruins the reputation, stains one’s honor, pushes society into chaos. She is here: Carmen! 

The internationally awarded stage performances by Compañía Kaari & Roni Martin are known for their absurd aesthetics. The ensemble’s premiere work KILL Carmen is simultaneously crude and cruel, alluring and twisted. Led by Roni Martin, the orchestra masterfully combines funk, flamenco and Balkan influences. Spanish dancers Mariana Collado and Carlos Chamorro erupt into the Pannuhalli performance space in the Cable Factory, all the way laughing right in the face of death.
