People ’Conflictus’ is a piece based on the composition and ideas of composer Ralf Nyqvist. The piece combines dance, chamber music and sound design.
The choreography of the piece has been created to be a part of the composition and Malviniemi’s choreography is a physical and movement-based integral composition for three performers.
The performance displays feelings of provocation, conflict and conciliation. The piece is created to be performed as a part of a chamber music concert programme. Conflictus is made up of five parts:
I Provocation, II Dispute, III Confrontation, IV Regrette and VI Compromise. The music is a contemporary composition and contains elements of improvisation.
The piece had its premiere in November 2015 at the RUSK chamber music festival in Pietarsaari, Finland.
