Sounds like performance_now brings Kiasma a diverse set of events that deals with sound and its various manifestations in the performing arts. There will be concerts, radio drama, workshops and performances all around the museum. The artists featuring the festival are e.g. Maija Tammi & Charles Quevillon, Eero Yli-Vakkuri, Niko Hallikainen, Tina Mariane Krogh Madsen, Ville Aalto, Marja Skaffari and Simo Vassinen.

We unfortunately had to cancel the participation of Artor Jesus Inkerö and Santtu Eemil Uuttu, Vicente Ugartechea & Tatu Nenonen because of the travel restrictions.

Due to the coronavirus situation, we remind the audience not to attend the event if suffering from any symptoms. We kindly ask the audience to take care of hand hygiene, remain safety distances and wear a mask if necessary. Kiasma Theatre’s seating capacity is restricted for safety.

Performance_now

Performance_now is a platform for performing arts. All of the events are concentrated in the border areas between performing arts, space and visual arts. Performance_now wants to create a safe space and we ask the audience to respect it as well.

Sound in 2020 programme

Kiasma Theatre’s 2020 theme is sound. How does the sound feel and what are the bodily affections? How does sound support the performance? How does it unite? How could one communicate through sound? We want to give room to voices that are not always the loudliest, that are easily left out or pushed to the margins.
