Den Andra Naturen

WORLD PREMIERE 3.3.2018

“… både Pipsa Lonka och Anni Klein bevisar med Den andra naturen att de är bland de intressantaste, mest personliga skaparna i dagens teater-Finland.”
– HBL

“Upplägget är avskalat och genomtänkt in i minsta detalj.”

“Det är groteskt men ofta också groteskt roande eller djupt berörande.”
– YLE

“…on vaikea löytää näytelmää, joka tarkastelisi ihmiskunnan kohtalokkaimpia kysymyksiä yhtä myötätuntoisella katseella kuin Toinen luonto.”
-HS

“Pipsa Lonkas filosofiska pjäs Den andra naturen på Teater Viirus behandlar den mänskliga naturen och mänskligheten som art i förhållande till andra arter på ett sätt som lämnar rum för både existentiella resonemang och underfundig humor – intelligent underhållning på hög nivå.”
– VN

The gaze of foreign species is what defines us as human, gives us the correct coordinates. How could they ever be communicated in our own language? It is only in the eyes of a stranger that we can read who and what we are.

– Leena Krohn, Datura

Den Andra Naturen is a funny and at the same time melancholic performances about getting used to living, the ethical choices that are hidden in our everyday lives and the moments in life that shake up our habitual behaviour. The performance contemplates our mortality, that we share with all the other living beings.

Unpacking the relationship between humans and animals the performance looks deeper, at ones relationship to the other. How do we perceive the difference between living creatures. What does it mean to own another, is it allowed or even possible? Can you refuse to do so?

Director Anni Klein and sounddesigner Heidi Soidinsalon return using the playback-aesthetic they’ve developed for many years in performances such as Play Alter Native (Viirus, 2012) and WunderKinder (teater 90°, 2016) The visually striking set-seding is made by Laura Haapakangas, Jani-Matti Salo and Mark Niskanen.

The performance is Swedish-speaking and subtitled to English and Finnish to the mobile application THEA. Read more about the subtitles here
