Enjoy an interpretation of Oulu’s semi-fictional, mythical past starring the ancient king Faravid. Artistic Director of the Oulu Theatre Alma Lehmuskallio and choreographer, artist Pirjo Yli-Maunula will direct an immersive, multi-sensory piece combining contemporary dance and circus, theatre, music and visual elements in unexpected ways. History, stories, roots and identity will form a mythical world in cooperation with a number of international and Finnish professionals from the operating cultures of the theatre world and the freelancer scene.
Faravid’s Land will take place in an empty factory building. You will step right into this immersive creation and experience a profound urban adventure: You can choose your own path through this world and play, imagine, hide and even interact with the artists. Co-creating the dramaturgy through one’s own actions makes the experience both intimate and unique.
Audience accessibility will be expanded through digital methods, so that parts of the work can also be experienced remotely, from anywhere in the world.
