Pekka Kuusisto


Finnish violinist Pekka Kuusito and South-Korean artist Aamu Song bring an extraordinary project to the Pierre Boulez Saal that blurs the boundaries between performance and visual art. REDDRESS, first seen in 2005 at the Louisiana Museum in Denmark, places the musician in a huge dress that fills the concert hall, with audience members seated in individual “pockets.” In this highly unusual setting, Kuusisto will perform electronic music and Finnish folk music on alternate nights, as can be seen in this video.

Please note that audience members seated in section A (within the dress) must take off their shoes for the duration of the concert.
