How do environmental stimuli guide our gaze and spatial orientation?
In what ways do we exercise power through the gaze?
Why do we build meanings through our gaze where there previously were none?
Choreographer Johanna Nuutinen’s creation OPIA dives eyes first in the middle of these ever present questions relating to looking, being looked at, and forming meaning between things we see.
OPIA explores its topic through movement language spiralling into the world behind the gaze, perspective-questioning visual design and captivating soundscape.
