NUUA - MEANWHILE


Meanwhile is based on an absurd object manipulation in an absurd context, which feeds our perception of time and how we use it. We emphasize the importance of all things we understand unimportant. Two jugglers playing imaginatively with everyday elements is pushing our understanding of how all things felt unnecessary can provoke a change in our values or simply become something beautiful to witness. With minimalistic humour and virtuous object manipulation, the performance offers an array of images from our cultural values and its absurd order of priorities.


Meanwhile aesthetics are surreal and timeless. The performance can be experienced around the world - it opens up in different ways to different audiences. Performance mixes freely juggling, object manipulation and visual theatre. With the help of absurd humor, we bring viewers into a receptive state where they are open to new emotional experiences that can affect their worldview.


Olli Vuorinen is directing the performance with a technique he has developed over the years, in which precisely rhythmic object manipulation in a theatrical context builds a new kind of contemporary circus that is ambiguous, whimsical, fun and touching. Jouni Ihalainen works as the artistic and technical assistant of the performance.


The premiere of the performance will be seen in 2021.

Duration of the show is approx. 50 minutes.
