WATER FALL 5 is a work through which we investigate metamorphosis and human relations. Using a random, associative method, we will create a performance for two performers and audience at MUU Gallery. The performance lasts about 30 minutes. Only a limited number of seats.


Thursday 14.9. at 18:00 (fully booked)
Saturday 16.9. at 18:00 (fully booked)
Sunday 17.9. at 13:30 (part of Helsinki Art Walk)
Sunday 17.9. at 16:00 (fully booked)

The performance is in English.


Bodies, language, images and space will all be moving and changing in relation to each other. We are intrigued by conflict and tension and the feelings of liberation they can awaken.

WATER FALL 5 is part of a project launched in 2016 in which we explore memory, imagination, commitment and liquid forms of matter. WATER FALL consists of performances and installations. In terms of duration, the performances have ranged from 30 minute to 12 hours, while the component parts of the installations have ranged from sounds to photographs and beyond.

The first instalment of WATER FALL premiered at contemporary art space Kutomo in October 2016, and has since been shown at B-galleria in Turku and at Asematila and SIC spaces in Helsinki. After the performances in MUU Gallery, the sixth instalment will be performed at the XS Festival for New Dance and Performance at Kutomo in November 2917.
