Vapauden kauhu (‘The Horror of Freedom’) – A performance about the end of imprisonment

A new beginning – is it possible after years in the can? A joint production by the Finnish National Theatre’s Touring Stage and Kiasma Theatre, the performance explores the situations of people being released from prison, and why the process is so difficult in our society. Combining theatre, music and moving images, the performance includes both professional actors as well as people who have served time in prison.

Performers: Jani Karvinen, Ilja Peltonen, Taisto Reimaluoto, Sanna Salmenkallio and actors of the Porttiteatteri theatrical ensemble for released prisoners. Directed by Jussi Lehtonen, written by Asta Honkamaa and ensemble

Co-production of Finnish National Theatre’s Touring Stage & Kiasma Theatre
