Tonttu is chorereograpy and physical performance by Pasi Mäkelä, performer and musician living in Prague, and co-directing Meteorismo.

"Tonttu (eng. gnome) is a mythical figure of Scandinavian folklore. It was
common belief that in most of the areas of the natural world existed gnomes.
Forests had forest gnomes, saunas sauna gnomes, barns had barn gnomes
etc. Gnomes helped people if they were treated well, but if treated badly or
neglected they could cause all kinds of torments and turmoil. Gnomes were
link between natural world and human society.
Outskirts of society are parallel to the outskirts of the body and the mind.
Somewhere in the shadows of total confusion lurks Tonttu.
In finnish language word tonttu is also synonym for idiot."
