Nature Theatre of Oblivia

Nature Theatre of Oblivia works with the impressions, experiences and desires that nature offers us, as a concept and as a place to be, and something to become – like a forest in all its familiarity and uncanniness.

Nature Theatre of Oblivia will be using performance, and augmented realities – AR, Arilyn technology creating a two-fold experience where the live-performance is one part and the smart phone performance – Oblivia in the pocket using the Arilyn app – another.

Candide

Oblivia creates their first performance for young audience. The starting point is Voltaire’s novel Candide (1759), but as usual in Oblivia’s work the point of departure will be used in a many-faceted and highly personal way.

Candide is surprisingly current today, the story of a young man who is driven away from his paradise in Westfalen and travels the world, sees and experiences atrocities and evil and ends up with his friends to cultivate their garden in Turkey.

MOPMA 4 – The Rave
Mopma4-therave-frontimage
MOPMA 4- the Rave is the fourth take on postmodernism in the MOPMA series, as a durational live stream performance created for Mad House Helsinki and premiered via live- stream on 10.10 at 18.00. Performances at 13- 14.10 starting at 18.00 in Mad House. Duration 3 hrs.In MOPMA 4 – the Rave we were asking ourselves: what is the performance of the future? We thought about different ways of connecting and disconnecting, of diminishing the ecological footprint that touring brings and still be internationally present. The answer was a live-streamed durational rave from a white studio. The performance will also be streamed to Berlin and Australia.
Working group: Meri Ekola, Timo Fredriksson, Christopher Hewitt, Sonja Jokiniemi, Anna-Maija Terävä, Annika Tudeer, Juuso Voltti. Producer: Marina Andersson-Rahikka. Production: Oblivia, Mad House.
