Dreams for the future can help us live, however they can also prevent us from living the life that we really desire. Taneli’s solo is about waking up – a rethinking of the meaning and importance of dreams. In Classical beauty, the dancer-choreographer Taneli Törmä is hunting for one of his dreams – to dance his way to become a classical ballet male soloist. This dream is something that he couldn’t have done alone anymore. In the solo, he needs to modify his dream in order for it to come true. Sometimes it takes 11 years or more to get the courage to face the actual tools to fulfil the dream so that the dream would be finally true to yourself. Taneli Törmä performs his dream humorously, but with profound honesty.
