ACCESSIBLE ART PRESENTED IN ESPOO – PERFORMERS AROUND THE WORLD AND AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE

Can you picture yourself playing Marimba without seeing? Or dancing tango in a wheelchair? Even the daily routines for some of us seem impossible to others, like going to the supermarket with a physical disability or singing when you're deaf. The event, where the audience can witness when impossible becomes possible, will be held in Espoo Cultural Centre on 19 August 2017.

The upcoming event organized in collaboration with the City of Espoo is starred by South Korean Jeon Kyungho, the World First visual impairment Marimba player and also a percussionist. For him, the disability is not an overcoming matter but the driving force. His performance has been taking center stage in worldwide. He successfully represented performances in Paris, Hong Kong and New York. Other performers of the event are Glims & Gloms dance theatre, Pirkanmaa wheelchair dancers, Egyptian folk dance Tanoura and possible surprise acts.

Venue: Tapiola Hall, Espoo Cultural Centre
Address: Kulttuuriaukio 2, 02100 Espoo, Finland
