Children and Other Radicals
Oblivia has invited a group of young people from Helsinki 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. Estimated duration about 1 hour.
Performers: Marie Bergholm, Mikko Bredenberg, Alice Ferl, Timo Fredriksson, Amos Korkeamäki, Saga Korkeamäki, Victor Lietz, Anna–Maija Terävä, Annika Tudeer and Max Uusitalo
