Juhlat – Gruppen Fyra & Reetta Honkakoski
Juhlat, ‘Celebration’, is about the fear of life, and about dancing on the ruins of the world.
The inward-turned world of four people is coloured by desperately clinging to the past: something has ended a long time ago, but they are not able to let go. Time drags forward unsteadily, and the four grow older in their dilapidated epoch.
Juhlat is a dark, but humorous performance combing physical and dance theatre. The tragicomic image of humanity depicted in the work draws inspiration from the heritage of Eugène Ionesco and Samuel Beckett. The piece was directed by international award-winning physical theatre director and Corporeal Mime stage artist Reetta Honkakoski.
