"Doing something lyrical and beautiful just felt like the right choice"
Team Unique (FIN), season 2020-2021. (Credits: Team Unique - 2020)
The season is about to start in Finland with the first competition expected in less than a month. The Team Unique took this opportunity to reveal its themes for the upcoming season.
The Helsinki team is preparing a very dynamic and fast short program called "Now". The long program seems to be calmer, more complex, and deep. This difference in pace and performance seems to characterize this team, which won the inaugural synchronized skating Challenger Series last season.
Team Unique: Our short program itself actually interprets a public protest - gathering a group, expressing opinions, and escaping the security forces at the scene of the protest. The message behind this program, however, is not linked to any particular idea or movement. Instead, the message is more like ”the many faces of rebellion”. Like in our theme description: whatever reason you have, use your voice, be loud, and act now.
It was not a clear and instant idea that it’s what we’re going to do. Our head coach first found one piece of music, and then one of our other coaches came up with the theme, and the idea just kind of started developing from there. Also, we guess the idea of doing something lyrical and beautiful just felt like the right choice.
Are you going to interpret Adam and Eve on the ice?
Well, you will see all the famous scenes from the story; the beautiful paradise and all its animals, the mysterious snake, and of course, the moment when Eve decides to bite the forbidden apple ;-) !
You can expect lyrical, beautiful, and powerful music and emotions. The choreography will also be nothing like our sharp and upbeat short program but rather a piece of creative art.

TU Free program 2020-2021: Garden of Eden • ”Adam and Eve, the first man and woman, lived in a paradise, the Garden of Eden. They were told by their creator, God, that they could eat any fruit from the trees except for the tree of good and evil. One day the Evil came disguised as a snake and spoke to Eve, convincing her to take the forbidden fruit, an apple, from the tree of good and evil. Eve believed the evil snake and though she’d become like God if she had a bite of the apple. She then gave a bite for Adam as well and they ended up dying spiritually, being separated from God. Finally, they found peace and their lives came to a physical end, together in the paradise.” • Ps.
