Theatre: Falke & Lindgren
Premiere: 9.11.2012 in Tehdas Teatteri, Turku

Trafika tells the strange story of a couple who can only communicate through traffic signs. One evening while sitting as usual by their kitchen table, the signs takes over. Old memories and quarrels are brought to life in a dramatic rhythmical ride between past and present. Collision is inevitable.

TraFika was created since 2011 by the Finnish puppeteer from Sixfingers company Ishmael Falke and the Amsterdam based Swedish choreographer Sandrina Lindgren. Combining their experience in puppetry and dance, they create unique images and illusions in movement and scale on stage.
