Tangotheatre Kiuta is an independent dance theatre group established by Marjo Kiukaanniemi and Timo Hakkarainen in 2011. It uses Argentine tango as a tool and choreographic base for their performances. Marjo and Timo have studied Argentinian tango together around the world since 2009. In performative tango Marjo and Timo hold on to the core of Argentinian tango as a social dance: listening to one's partner, shared musicality and dynamic motion. Further, in Kiuta's performances Argentine tango is joined together with physical theatre, partnering techniques of contemporary dance and unusual topics for tango. The soul and core of Kiuta´s performances are live music, strong stories, subtle humor and silent power. During last seven years Kiuta's productions have been performed about 100 times in nine countries and 33 cities. Tangotheatre Kiuta has emerged from an urge to leave a remark... even a small one. www.tangokiuta.com
