The Loving Memory of Hans Rosling

Premiere, 16.3.2021, on tour 2021–

Oskar Pöysti brings the memory of Hans Rosling to life in the monologue The Loving Memory of Hans Rosling.

But what would Rosling say about the world today?

“It is never too late to give up, so we might as well do that another time.”
–Hans Rosling
