Climbing bodies, twisting ropes, dance in dizzying heights, shadowy illusions

In addition to its stunning aerial acrobatics, the always surprising and multifaceted Ro-pu is tender and humorous. The music that pulsates and echoes in the bodies of the spectators is a key element of this artistically innovative production. All music featured in the performance has been composed originally for Ro-pu.

"Ro-pu is miraculously beautiful."
Kaisa Kurikka / Turun Sanomat
Ro-pu employs the latest technology in its soundscapes and visuals. The artists' movements on the stage are shot on video and used as the initial impulse for video projections and music.
