In the past
Yöväenteatteri a theatre of sidewalk cracks
Yöväenteatteri is a series of site specific miniature performances made in urban
settings. With the help of small figurines each scene transforms street elements
like sidewalk cracks, trashcans or water puddles into vast set designs. This
sublime micro-scale landscape is the kulisse for stories of humans and their ability
or inability to adapt to their surroundings.
During spring 2018 Sandrina Lindgren and Ishmael Falke spend time on the
streets of the Turku suburb Halinen in order to create a series of site specific short
performances. Performances are later presented as a part of Olohuone 306,4 km2
Urban Art Festival in Turku and URB festival in Helsinki. For URB festival
Yöväenteatteri is realized in close collaboration with project “The Russian Bar” by
St Petersburg-based curatorial duo TOK.
Yöväenteatteri in Halinen is developed with the financial support of Niilo
