Two artists imagine six possible directions of life. These directions are like swellings of life, coloured by ideologies and life styles – different kinds of routes on which wondering and repetition, coincidence and choice and fiction and real meet.
Life as we know it is a performance stemming from the principle of continuous change, questions of imagining close futures and the surprises of life. The ability to create requires an ability to renew ourselves and grow through the whole of our life. How to recognise change, how to influence it?
Choreographer & performance maker Maija Hirvanen and sound artist & performance maker Juha Valkeapää are both established artists working actively internationally and in Finland. Life as we know itis their first collaborative work, made of recycled narratives, physical situations, humour and friction.
