Turn Turtle Turn – the lecture performance

Annika Tudeer, founder of Oblivia and Mad House Helsinki, celebrates her 60th birthday and Mad House’s 10th anniversary with a solo lecture performance about life, death and dodos. 

The solo is framed by Oblivia’s new and up to now biggest performance, Turn Turtle Turn (premiere at Münchener Biennale on June 5th 2024), which ponders the anthropocene and criss-crosses a time span from dinosaurs to the future.

“I want it to be anarchic, fun and wild. Let’s see.”
