A performance for the whole family that combines dance and object theater
The work INEHMOT, created jointly by dance artist Titta Court and puppet theater artist Jose Salo, has been inspired by the Finno-Ugric holder doll tradition and Guatemalan care dolls.
The worries and worries entrusted to the puppets, and at the same time the simple and modest implementation of the puppets, create an interesting contrast. Belief in the dolls ’ability to help and eliminate problems is strong. The difficulties that appear on the stage in the form of different characters are solved by listening and sympathizing.
Anssi Laiho's sound design and Jukka Huitila's lights support the delicate structure of the performance and create new worlds in front of the viewer. Jaana Isokangas is responsible for the costume.
The performance is speechless.
"With the help of a couple of rags, the driftwood is shaped into both a majestic deer and a flying lizard. The menacing bullfighter and the way-looking threads are reminiscent of the Minotauros stories."
