Pendulum I Thom Monckton I Luis Sartori do Vale cCosmin Cirstea


Luis Sartori do Vale and Thom Monckton

Dec 1st 19h00, 3rd and 4th 15h00

PENDULUM  is two aristocrats’ cavalcade of self-reinforcing idiocracies and a peculiar fascination with everything that sways, cradles or swings. Two noblemen set out on a journey of inexplicable importance. In the familiar surroundings of upper-class comfort not even stupidity stands in the way of these two and their ingenious discoveries. Slowly, it dawns on them however, that not everything is as it once was, for what is Nobility without riches, servants and reason?

All the things that constantly move back and forth is the essence of restlessness! Yet, we find in these motions an intrinsic comforting, as if they remind us of an experience before consciousness.

The performance aims to combine the explosiveness and action of circus with the human physical response to gentle constant movement.

Kallo Collective - The Divine Lie - JPM



Dec 1st and 3rd 20h00 and 4th 19h00

Inspired by Anna Kortelainen's book Restless Woman - The Cultural History of Hysteria and its descriptions of hypnosis shows and the phenomena around the hysteria patients in the Late 19th Century.

Directed by Pirjo Yli-Maunula and created in collaboration with the entire working group, the work moves at the interfaces of different art fields. The multidisciplinary team consists of artists from clowning, dance, corporeal mime, music and visual arts. 

The audience is taken to the interface of absurd scenes from the everyday life of the sanatorium, and the repetitive days of alike. The movingly heroic and tenacious characters, their dreams, hopes, resentments, and efforts of power, become shameless and sensual, perhaps redefining beauty as well.

Direction: Pirjo Yli-Maunula

Performers: Jenni Kallo, Ona Kamu, Kaisa Niemi, Tuovi Rantanen, Hanna Terävä 

Music: Ona Kamu

Sound design: Hanna Rajakangas

Inga Björn & Kristiina Tammisalo

Dec 2nd 20h00 and Dec 3rd & 4th 17h00

A spinoff show from Chameleon, these two receptionists are fast-talking smooth moving professionals in the hospitality industry. They speak multiple languages, none of which you can understand, and have an almost pathological fear of their customers.

Impressively silly and exceptionally charismatic, Inga and Kristiina have a unique and hilarious chemistry, which makes the whole experience delightfully bonkers. The aesthetically pleasing performance is strongly physical, unconventional and hilarious, suitable for all age groups.

Creation and direction: Inga Björn & Kristiina Tammisalo

Outside eye: Thom Monckton

Sound design: Esko Mattila

Light design: Kauri Klemelä

Visual: Gemma Tweedie

Duration 55 minutes

Age recommendation +7 yrs

With support from: Finnish Arts Promotion Center, Alfred Kordelin Foundation, Helsinki City, Cirko - Center for New Circus
