Gorkij Park 2 Gunilla Heilborn
Gorkij Park 2 is a completely independent sequel to the 80’s thriller Gorky Park, a Hollywood story with the KGB in fur hats, filmed in Helsinki due to the cold war that was going on at the time. This show takes its starting point in the film and deals with forgotten utopias, social realism and a curiosity about what really happened at Fjodors’ party.

Marmelade Claire Parsons Co.
What is marmelade? Is it cherry, pear, figs, mint flavor, upside down, together or inside out? A delicious, sensory performance about meeting, mixing and blending. Mira and Viktor taste and feel in poetic movements and circus actions in an exquisite and visual experience together with the audience. Marmelade looks at the world through body, eye, feeling and taste in a room with fluffy skirts, soft circus and Fellini music.

Marmelade is choreographer Claire Parsons’ first dance production for young children from 2 – 6 years.
