TEMPTATION

Temptation

Houkutus (Temptation) is a physical comedy about one mans struggle with his addiction to cigarettes. Deceptively light-hearted, this solo show is uniquely physicalised and comically twisted offering the audience a chance to laugh and empathise at a state of mind we all experience on some level. 

Kurppa's solo performance is a veritable lesson in dark, contemporary clowning. Humble, but surprisingly sinister, Sampo's expressive physical articulation will have you captivated from start to finish.
