Humanoidihypoteesi / Humanoid Hypothesis

Theatre: Other Spaces -collective
Premiere: 17.2.2015 / 22.4.2016
Humanoidihypoteesi  /  Humanoid Hypothesis

According to the ‘hypothesis’ of the group, being a humanoid is a modern experience of which every one of us has both cultural and personal understanding. We ‘know’ how humanoids look like, what they think and what they do, regardless of whether we believe in their existence or not. As much as humanoids contribute to our everyday experience, we have – perhaps unnoticed – become ‘them’. The project encourages everyone to get acquainted with her inner alien!
The first series of Humanoid Hypothesis performances was organized in February 2015 at the Helsinki University Campus, the second series was performed at the Kiasma Theatre in April 2016.
OTHER SPACES is a Helsinki based live arts collective, founded in 2004. The group specializes in bodily exercises through which people can visit “other spaces”, i.e. enter in contact with the modes of being and experience other than human.
