Danke + new projects

Thanks to everyone who took part in the great club/performance evening at LABfactory on 7 May!!! My short scratch act “What we need” — personal reflections on a Finnish 1968-Communist-movement through a song analysis of an influential communist song (almost a Schlager actually 🙂 ) “Sinun lapsesi” (Your children) — was well received indeed! This  scratch act was a really important first step, kind of a “ground” to build on, of my next extensive performance project about the relationship(s) between Live Art, ideology/politics, and architecture, to be realized in 2012.  More info to follow soon.

My next engagement will take place in Finland, I’ll direct and co-devise a lecture performance about innovation and economy  in August. Keep tuned!

A science fiction drama theatre project is also on the way, too, me acting one of the leading roles,  to be premiered in Vienna in January 2012.  More info to follow.

Enjoy the summer & bis bald!
