Premiering 13.10.2018 Helsinki, (Kanneltalo & Stoa)
A Show about Us who are at the Same Time, Here
TÄÄLLÄ / HERE is a multi-volume piece of physical theatre. It is a portrait of humanity drawn on the edge of the world.
The director, Corporeal Mime artist Reetta Honkakoski has assembled the cast from professionals and amateurs of different ages. The cast has been working through physical theatre with the themes of closeness, encountering another, and togetherness in a shared surroundings.
The piece fills the stage with community: memories of people walking by, stories our bodies carry, experiences we imagined.
Here we are – on the carousel of time, wandering constantly lugging our shells from place to place, looking for a touch, helping one another, waiting on the platform for ourselves to arrive.
