Askel ikääntyy, varjot pitenevät, selkä taittaa syvään.
Aika on vain yksi liukuva pinta, ja keho muistelee. Etäisyydeltä kuin laulaen metsänhenki kuiskailee.
Steps grow old, shadows lenghten, back bends low. Time is only one tightly stretched bow.
Body remembers, all your sung whispers the forest spirit listens.
To be not me
Ghia Lumia & Simon Granit Ossoinak
Connection is in between, an intention to cover the gap separating us. Feeling deeply connected is the closest we can get to understanding the question many of us have wondered at some point of their life: “what is it like to be not me?”. In the show we go back to the basics of human connection to see how we can make connecting deeply with someone easier. We wish to bring the audience into something they might have once known, but forgotten.
Three Sisters / Kolm Öde
Big Wolf Company
Full length production
“Three Sisters” is a performance that talks about the great women of the Nordic countries. Of their tenderness, strength, convictions and fears. The mysteries unfold in reality and disappear between heaven and earth. There is no right or wrong, no good or bad, a woman is just flesh and bone in the veil of sisterly love.
Idea and creation: Big Wolf Company
On stage: Grete Gross (EST), Lizeth Wolk (EST) and Ghia Lumia (FIN)
Pre-project creation: Grete Gross, Lizeth Wolk, Noora Pasanen (FIN)
The space in between
Full length production 2017
This is a free spirited and humorous show about the Finnish mental landscape. A group of passengers misses a bus and realises that they are stuck together in this space, where one is alone but without privacy. If you get lost in your thoughts, how far is it possible to drift?
