As quoted from the website of Teemu Lehmusruusu:
...The second part of Declaration of Love is a dance improvisation shot in a closed sanatorium in Germany.

The choreography is inspired by japanese buto and together these starting points come together to meditate the sufferings of affectuation, love as impossible...
