“METICULOUS PHYSICALITY AND UNSTINTING HUMOUR”. MARY BRENNAN, THE HERALD, SCOTLAND
Founded in 2000 in Helsinki, the international performance company Oblivia is a unique force on the Finnish performance scene. Working from grand ideas to minimalist performances, Oblivia merge the boundaries of genres and nationalities. The background of Oblivia’s members from Finland and UK are in music, dance and theory. This mixture creates a vibrant tension and humour in the work. From the beginning the core members have been working together creating a common performance language. Kiasma Theatre has co-produced the Entertainment Island project. PACT Zollverein and CCA have hosted several residencies for the project.
Presentation is part of TEKIJÄ Theatre Touring Network project’s activities.
