Ninu Lindfors & females from Vanaja prison: Place on Earth
Place on Earth is a story about longing, yearning for comfort, and perspectives
one is the swing between the birch trees
the hut high up in the trees where the forest road ends
when so beautiful was the land
Place on Earth, directed by dancer-choreographer Ninu Lindfors, is a story about longing, yearning for comfort, and perspectives; of a journey towards a place that is not easy to find. It is constantly in motion and always going somewhere. For we are longing for somewhere different, looking for something different, just because.
Taittuu ry, a non-profit organisation led by director Hannele Martikainen, has worked against marginalisation and for a more equal society through prison theatre for more than a decade. Place on Earth is a collaboration with seven females from the Vanaja prison.
