Borrowing its name from the medieval theatre slang term for the stage, The Green promises visually strong theatre, which uses stage magic, video projection, cinematic sound and scenic compositions as its means of expression.
The Green is inspired by hauntology, feelings of emptiness and unboxing videos on YouTube. The nothingness of an empty stage and green screen slowly turn into a living character that takes over the stage area. Combining 19th century stage magic techniques with the latest video and sound technology, the mood of this show without words ranges from the mundane to the abstract and magical. The Green leads the audience to the brink of the unreal, where the border
between reality and delusion is blurred.
The production of the show has been supported by: The Finnish Cultural Foundation, Samuel Huber Art Foundation, Kumu Art Museum, Silence Festival, Subcase, Arts Promotion Centre Finland, Cirko – Centre for New Circus.
