THE 13TH EDITION OF MULTI-DISCIPLINARY SILENCE FESTIVAL WAS HELD IN THE VILLAGE OF KAUKONEN, KITTILÄ ON 8 TO 11 JUNE 2023.
The festival program, organized by the Silence Artists' Association, brought together the creators and creations of contemporary circus and classical music.
More than 20 performances took place in the Kaukonen village: the Community House, Kaukonen Sports Hall, Kaukonen greenhouse, Ojanperä hall as well as local homes and buildings in the village.
This year's festival featured four premieres that were commissioned especially for the event. Many works combined spatial design with music and circus. Experiencing artistic spontaneity in characterful spaces is what makes Silence Festival unique.
Artistic directors: Karita Tikka for cirkus program and Lauri Sallinen for classical music program
Managing directors: Jonna Leppänen and Joonas Martikainen
Visual designer and the head of the technical team: Jukka Huitila

My festival was a blast! I designed all four premieres and on top of that three totally different concerts.
To keep it short, be there next year!
