Doom & Bloom premieres this May at Theatre Takomo in Helsinki

Apr 11, 2023 | 2023

Doom & Bloom is a performance with four performers, a noise & pop duo and light design. The work is built on imaginary visions that spring up from subjects such as destruction and rebirthing. The four parts of the performance; “the still”, “the sacred geometry”, “the speech” and “the solo” are intertwined in low frequencies, sharp screams and polyphonic vocals of the music.

The work is steered by dance artists Hanna Ahti, Anna Maria Häkkinen and Maija Mustonen who share the stage with actor Niina Hosiasluoma, the light design of Jenni Pystynen and the music of An Tul (Saana Pohjonen and Helena Pulkkinen).
