Borrowed Light is inspired by the Shaker Movement – a radical Protestant popular movement that was founded in England and blossomed in the USA during the late 1700s and 1800s. The Shaker Movement became known for its strong revolutionary social values, that they valued hard work and not least for their beautiful ascetic functional esthetics and design. But Borrowed Light isn’t about the Shaker Movement. It is more about belonging, sacrifice and devotion: “For me, the spirit of total devotion and commitment – regardless if it is religious, artistic or political – is basically the same,” says Tero Saarinen. Borrowed Light is performed by eight dancers and eight singers on the stage. Singing is central and performed by the music ensemble The Boston Camerata.
