Compañía Kaari & Roni Martin: Letters from an Island
Unique perspectives on Finnishness in the landscapes of Olavinlinna.
Letters from an Island transports viewers to the performances of artists from different backgrounds. With their work, each artist brings a perspective to how Finnishness is shown in the light of their personal history.
On a tour of multi-layered and multicultural Finland, you will experience, among other things, dance and performance art, as well as listen to Tarab music, modern folk song adaptations and even a jouhikko magician.
Irony, roughness and carnivalism are present, as typical to the ensemble’s works.
