“Drafts of a Dinner” with our Theatre Ensemble Talvi

This summer we have been rehearsing with Teatteri Talvi, a Helsinki-based theatre and performance group. Our idea was to work around a dining table, with the thematics of dining, eating, table manners and food and to explore how can a regular table become a stage. In addition to that we wanted to move our dining table outdoors, explore how does being in the public space affect to all this.
“Luonnoksia eräältä illalliselta” (trans. Drafts of a Dinner) was performed on the shore of Töölönlahti, Helsinki in August. This summer’s performance was the first draft of this project and next year we will produce a more finalized performance. So we are continuing with the same themes and ways of working collaboratively, without one specific director or dramatist. Excited to continue with this project!

Working group: Antti Halonen, Eeva Kemppi, Paula Laurila, Jenni Rahunen, Anna-Sofia Sysser, Heini Tuoresmäki and Reeta Tuoresmäki
