Jazz Meets Dance / Theater / Circus is a massive production bringing together the finest artist around the world. One week together the artists are discovering common ground through improvisation. 

The focus is in jazz, the abstract language that people understand without words globally. Ensemble is led by Timo Hirvonen. He has called some of the finest players on the planet: from Finland guitarist Teemu Viinikainen and drummer Jussi Lehtonen. Percussion and drummers are shared with amazing Rafael Barata from Brazil and saxophonist Alex Terrier, doing it in strongly in NYC.
