Sonya Lindfors, choreographer and artistic director, continues her diverse activities to tackle the violent experience of othering and racialisation. Lindfors’s work has already had an impact on the closed spheres of discourse and thought in Finnish dance and performance culture. Lindfors received the Theatre Info Finland Award 2017 for these achievements.
Jari Juutinen is currently the most in-demand Finnish theatre director and he is also doing the most international tours. This year, performances directed by Juutinen are being shown almost 70 times in total and only five of these are in his home country. In summer 2017, he is heading to the Avignon Festival and Edinburg Fringe.
Leea Klemola’s latest piece Vaimoni, Casanova ("Casavova, my wife" at the Kuopio City Theatre in 2016) is shamelessly over-the-top, in true Klemola style. It weaves together themes from Klemola’s earlier plays, such as the Arctic Trilogy (Kokkola, Into the Cold, New Karleby). In Klemola’s world, borders are made for crossing.
WunderKinder is a performance that mixes together a design catalog and working life discourse as it tells about the creative class and the service sector that supports it. The performance takes place in a neighborhood at the peak of gentrification, where a new class distinction is emerging at its most blatant.
