Alvar Aalto Week 2021
14.8.2021 - 22.8.2021
In 2021, the Alvar Aalto Week will take place in Kouvola from August 14 to 22, celebrating the rich industrial heritage of the locality.
Combining dance and architecture, the short film showcases Alvar Aalto’s built environment in Kouvola. Aalto’s architecture is human at heart – a principle which is reflected in each of his designs, for every aspect of life. A play between space, human form and solid architecture creates a dreamlike journey through the city.
The film is directed by David Jakob and choreographed by Jack Traylen. The dancers are Katerina Torp and Oskari Nyyssölä. Music is composed by Emil Sana. The film was produced by Koski Syväri.
