With musician Taito Hoffrén, we’re making a performance of fear, Pelko/Fear. The premiere takes place in June, 2019. Before that we organise some sessions that are open to public. Also, you can participate in the performance by writing us a letter about fear, what it means to you. We are very grateful, if you choose to do so. We’ll handle the answers confidentally, and don’t mention your name, if you say so. You can send your letter at pelko(at)juhavalkeapaa.net. Up-coming shows (dates tbc): Kanuti Gildi SAAL, Tallinn, 11-12 March (open rehearsal); Lainsuojattomat, Pori, 13-14 May (open rehearsal); Hangö Teaterträff, 6-9 June (premiere); Kajaani Poetry Week, 3-7 July. The official Pelko/Fear website can be found here.
Slowly and with no hurry, preparing a performance Life as we know it, with choreographer / performance maker Maija Hirvanen. Our premiere in 2020 is faraway, but we were chosen to MOTI – a program that aims to make Finnish theatre & performance art more international. We wish it helps us go there where we want to go! Relating to it, we had a talk with Sari Havukainen from Tinfo.
