Homo Homo Sapiens – Artistic Laboratory
For two and a half years, the Homo Homo Sapiens group (consisting of artist Jaakko Pesonen, philosopher Kai Alhanen, art historian Donna Roberts and actor Aleksi Holkko) has been engaging in dialogue to explore the group’s personal experiences and use them to create a work that reflects our time. The starting point is to explore humanity from the perspective of the experiences of a minority group, homosexuals, with the aim of grasping universal themes. The work that is created is constantly open and developing – and reforming through interaction with the audience. This artistic laboratory also explores new ways of being safely together in the same space – it provides all participants with their own physical and mental space to watch an experimental tale together.
Homo Homo Sapiens attempts to create a space in which we can look at the world together from different angles, ask impossible questions and imagine alternative realities.
The performance schedule will be published later.
The performance language is English, with an age limit of 16 years.
The work has been supported by Kone Foundation.
