I’m happy to tell you that the most renowned Finnish theatre magazine Teatteri & tanssi + sirkus wrote a very positive review about EIN.KÜCHEN.BAU – Kitchen work(s) at the STAGE Helsinki Theatre Festival in August 2013, as part of a long article on the theatre programme of STAGE and the Helsinki Festival.
“One of the most interesting works at Stage was Joonas Lahtinen’s small-scale EIN.KÜCHEN.BAU that seemed to be the only performance art production in the festival program. The performance showed us a lone guy dabbling about in a 1970’s styled fitted kitchen; it looked as if he had transformed into an efficient and hygienic part of a “world-machine” envisaged by architects and community planners. EIN.KÜCHEN.BAU that has been touring Europe was a funny and illustrative performance about the odd human utopies to make the world a better place.”
