This piece is a choreographed adaptation of Modest Mussorgsky's musical score composed inspired by Virtor Haartman's paintings. In the focal point we see the composer Mussorgsky himself, who arrives to the exhibition. The composer sees with his inner eye how the other exhibition visitors transform into characters in Haartman's paintings. This dance performance is depicting the way how an artist observes other people, life and art. Haartman's titles turn into movement on stage.
