Children and Other Radicals

Oblivia has invited a group of young people from Helsinki and Essen to join the working group for Children and Other Radicals. The teens work with artists in an equal setting, using art to look at money and economic structures. The performance consists of different generations considering the division of power and the role money plays in it. As generations X, Y and even Z use the stage to express their views of the future, the result is both humoristic and deep.

The performance is not language-based and is suitable for anyone over the age of 10. Duration: 45  min.

Annika Tudeer opens up the process of making of Children & Other Radicals,
in Finnish Ruumiillista rahan käsite ja ole osa maailmaa
