HEDE

Hede is a lyrical contemporary circus performance exploring organisms of human interaction. The performance transforms the stage into a visional room, where object manipulation, juggling and poetry meet in an absurd way. With symbolic floral objects and minimalistic aesthetics the show makes transitions from motion into imaginary - and the other way around. Hede balances between simple elements and complex thinking.


Olli Vuorinen juggles with flower pots, plants and other organic and non-organic objects mixing isolation and balancing techniques with physical theatre. Through her poetry Katri Salmenoja drills into complexities of human interaction building meaning and giving context to the physical. The cross-artistic dialogue evolves still together with visual artist Teo Lanerva, who creates a sensitive atmosphere adding visual narration to the performance. Tensions between manipulated objects and theatrical elements communicate seamlessly with poetry, light and sound.
