Frogpond

 

Mamia Company is a contemporary dance theater.  Company was founded in autumn 2014 by the choreographer & director Nina Mamia and director & actor Kasperi Nordman.

Both members of the company have a long experience of the art world as professionals, locally and internationally.

Company's performances reflect on contemporary topics, human condition and society.

Their creation process is preceded by a long period of research on the topic being dealt with. At the core of their work they often use scientific studies and articles on the subject in question. Objective research data gives them the facts on the performances subject. They like to broaden their horizons, avoid generalizations and personal assumptions. This approach allows them to create Mamia Company's art in multidimensional ways.

"Do not run around with trash and soil, for you never know, whose home it might spoil”. Dance theater performance about the importance of clean water. Frog Molly returns to her birth pond for a big family reunion, but finds out that her beloved home is spoiled. How can little Molly save her friend and home? Perhaps she needs some help, maybe from the audience.

Suitable for children 4 years and above.
