Metsä / ENG


Metsä (The Forest) is an experience, a camping trip of sorts for children under the age of six, and a paean to the Finnish forest. The performance space is an atmospheric dome tent where two performers, a dancer and a musician, create a forest.

The audience is invited on an interactive journey through dance, sound, tangible forest elements, shadow and light, space and smells that help the atmosphere and textures of the forest come alive to young viewers.
