"From mesmerizing stretches to rapidly shifting elevation changes, punkkiCo's dynamic brand of contemporary dance - built on founder Raisa Punkki's intricate choreography - hits GARAGE Art Space..." Amber Adrian 7x7
OTHER SPACE Other Space is an energetic, emotionally loaded work in punkkiCo style.
An odd story.
Other Space is an actual space as well as a state of mind that separate dancers from each others. Emotions and interactions between performers are leading this touching, amusing and fairly odd story.

DEEP Alpo Aaltokoski's Deep is a homage for the human body. "Directed by media artist Milla Moilanen, Deep focuses on Aaltokoski's pale, grayhound-like body. With his wing-like shoulder blades and skull-like face, he is a gorgeous, iconic human animal. Whether live or on (brilliantly shot and edited) film, Aaltokoski's every shape and physical articulation captures attention." Donald Hutera, Dance Europe / October 2004
