Porosafari / Reindeer Safari

Theatre: Other Spaces -collective
Premiere: 2010
Porosafari / Reindeer Safari

Reindeer Safari takes place in a semi-urban landscape where authentic reindeer might also visit. The participants form a herd, which moves according to the natural rules that correspond to the group behavior of reindeer. The herd chooses its path collectively.

The goal of Reindeer Safari is to restore the urban landscape to a state of nature by observing it from the point of view of a semi-domestic, semi-wild herd animal.

Reindeer Safari was awarded as the Environmental Artwork of the year 2011 by the Association of Environmental Art of Finland.

OTHER SPACES is a Helsinki based live arts collective, founded in 2004. Other Spaces invents and develops collective physical exercises, as well as participatory performances through which people can visit “other spaces”, i.e. enter in contact with the modes of being and experience other than human. The convener of Other Spaces is artist and philosopher Esa Kirkkopelto.
