The Seventh Salt

The Seventh Salt is choreographer Virpi Pahkinen’s new dance film, filmed in a dramatic environment in
Argentina’s Patagonia. In the pink shimmering desert, dancer Fredrik Quiñones struggles in strong winds and is
cast into his rite of passage. The salt flat vibrates with other forms of life. The number seven represents personal
sacrifice and the search for deeper meaning. The salt purifies, preserves, and shines with a new beginning.

The Seventh Salt premiered on Swedish Television November 5, 2016.
