traditional music from Finno-Ugric areas as well as newly composed pieces. This project got kickstarted by Taike's COVID-19 grant and Teaterstiftelsen Vivicas
As a shadow performance, the show is relying on the ancient empowering nature of lightness and darkness and their storytelling. The music is not just commenting on the storyline, in our aesthetics the music and the puppetry together form a special, abstract, but easily accessible audiovisual language. In the show we are combining traditional and contemporary music, different theatre approaches/methods which all together transcend cultural barriers. With “The Tale of the things that could have been said" we attempt to empower one’s cultural identity that expands beyond borders and social classes. We offer something for everyone regardless of age and mother tongue.
