Children believe they are immortal. Adults know they will die. The same bloodstream gives them life.

In Elina Pirinen's multidisciplinary stagework, eight children and eight adults come together in a ritual fueled by music and dance, the peculiarities of psychoanalysis, and the Appassionata of wild horses. The children and the adults give birth to two ritual fables transforming the stage into a circle of phantasms filled with wondrous alter egos, C and F major, ocean and time, iron and coal, la dolce vita…

Doves and Bloods is a cross generational metamorphosis that freely associates between the mysterious, the mundane, the weird, the corporeal, the visual, the musical. Children and adults embrace one another in the love of creative madness and perform intense and wonderfully strange rituals for themselves and for us.

Wouldn't life be more delightful if we could live along the whole spectrum of our age?
