PERFORMANCES

Re: 2020

Re: is a performance that looks into the experience of memory
is a common ground yet a celebration of individuality
creates a space for details that can be recognized
blurs the line between a truth and a lie
is an imprinted landscape on the skin
is an invitation to you by five artists
Performers: Folke Narin, Ruben Nagore, Jonna Lehto, Annimaria Koivunen

Losing the Concept(s) of Self – but Still Talking and 001 IMOUS – Teknoshamanistinen pikkujouluistunto are parts of The Autopsy of Democracy performance trilogy led by artists Teemu Päivinen and Jenni Kokkomäki from the theatre company Pluckhouse. The Autopsy of Democracy is investigating the death of democracy and it`s cause. During 2017-2020 the working group extended an anarcho-carnivalistic gaze upon the core elements which democracy is supposedly based on. Does such a system truly based on equality of rights and operation exist, or is democracy rather a textual wrapping paper for a less flattering order?
