The critically acclaimed hit returns to Viirus – in Finnish!
Subtitles available in English. 

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

Toinen luonto (The Second Nature) 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.
