_X8A9233.jpg

Storytelling means freedom

as you only need yourself

and the stories.

Storytelling is about mental images and universal

art that is practiced every day.

Ilkka Hautala has organized performances,

and events from 2011 so that the art of wisdom and having fun would prosper.

THE BEAR

Karhu is a musical storytelling performance about the mythology of the bear and the beliefs that have been associated to this great beast by the northern people.

The performance also talks about the fears related to this topic. Why does this animal evoke such fear that it penetrates even to the sleeping mind? Why have the people before us tried to conquer the animal and did they have a better relationship to nature because of this?

The story is told by Ilkka Hautala and the music is performed by Liila Jokelin.

The duration of the show is 30 min.

ICE IS MELTING!

Jää sulaa! Was originally made for The World Village festival in 2018. The show was ordered by Kulturkontakt Nord and inspired by the Agenda 2030.

Jää sulaa! is many things in one package: Ice building workshop, participatory theatre/storytelling performance, and a musical workshop for children.

 

Stories will be heard from nordic cultures, of ice, water and the spirits of nature. The children can participate by making musical atmospheres for the stories and figuring out solutions for ecological problems while making an ice castle.
