Theatre group Studio Total (previously Jalostamo²) premieres it’s new creation Dreams for Sale on November 17th in Helsinki. The site-specific creation is shown 15 times in Helsinki in a subterranean cave beneath Finnish National Museum.
Dreams for Sale is a total artwork full of visual and physical expression where the spectacular site Finnish National Museum’s rock cave plays also an important role. It is a performance about dreams, hope and new beginnings that is centered around Väinö, an archivist of dreams (Finnish dancer-actor Tuomas Juntunen) who has fled the world into a subterranean cave. Beneath the city of Helsinki the performance creates a soiree for the audience, a market of dreams. We are in a tunnel, but what is the light we see at the end of it?
The creation is the first part of a trilogy by Studio Total called Dreams, Dreams, Dreams that explores the hope and bliss of new beginnings.
Performance is co-produced with The National Museum.
To ensure the safety of the audience the capacity of the venue is lowered to keep the safety distances. The audience is asked to use a face mask during the performance.
