Launched last year, 4X − Touring Dance Event will be held again in spring 2024.  As part of the event Dance Theatre Raatikko’s piece explores the world of dance with young audiences. The children’s piece Aarteenetsijä A. by Sini Tuominen and Sami Elovaara is based on street dance. Playfulness, fun, self-expression, improvisation, emotions and personality − these are the words that describe the street dance community, and these descriptions also fit the Aarteebetsija A. performance. This participatory children’s piece puts bodies on the map and also gives the audience an active role.

Premiering in spring 2024, the inclusive children’s piece Aarteenetsijä A. is a journey of discovery of limbs and a leap of faith.
