"The Showing" /Finnish Dance Films Friday, October 16, 8:00 p.m. at a DOWNTOWN CROSSING LOFT

Rare performances of Finnish duo - dancer/choreographer Hanna Pajala-Assefa and percussionist Mamba (Abdissa Assefa) will present "The Showing" in three unique Boston living spaces followed by a program of Finnish dance films, October 15-16, 2010.


“The Showing” is a site-specific dance performance made for a private house. The artist constructs the piece assuming that house is for sale. The audience is invited inside by the artist who takes on a character of a real estate agent keen to sell the house to the audience. However, the agent’s presentation quickly transforms from official to personal revealing more details about the agent than the home she is trying to sell. Partly-improvised, full of humour and warmth, “The Showing” is dealling with ideas of femininity, fragility, strength in everyday life.
