HÄN-triptyykki (S/HE-Triptych) was a poetic solo performance dealing with issues of gender, power, language, human existence and sexuality. In Finnish language, we have the “neuter” form of he/she,”hän”. Which kinds of subversive interpretations does this unique form offer to us? Could it be an effective tool for challenging the normative and violent use of definitions and categorisations about unique human beings?
Concept, text and performance: Joonas Lahtinen

Neuroosi – elon rytmi sekaisin (2006)
Neuroosi – elon rytmi sekaisin (Neurosis) was an intimate performance about identity, power, violence, and neurosis within a postmodern subjectivity; about a young couple moving to a new flat. Will it become a “home”, their home? What to do when everything is “all right” but it does not feel like it at all?
