“From A Seed” has its origin in Aaltokoski’s first trip to Nicaragua in 1994. Aaltokoski was teaching modern dance and made a choreography for a Nicaraguan dance company Danza Contemporanea de Camara de Nicaragua.
De Una Semilla is an intense, a ritual-like solo. Its simple and sometimes ascetic language of movement reflects the choreographer’s own inner world and his vision of movement.
