All MALE PANEL (2018)
A satirical dance theater performance about a meeting where climate change is on the table but instead on it are the participants of the meeting, today's political figures themselves. All Male Panel is a mockery, but most of all it makes fun of itself as it tries its best to make political theater.
The performance is targeted to teenagers and it deals themes such as fake news, polarization, populism and uncertainty.
The piece has been part a Finnish educational project "Taidetestaajat" through which over 2400 eight-graders have seen the show in two years time. The production was done in cooperation with Hämeenlinna ARX, RRR, Apinatarha, Kinetic Orchestra & Kulttuurikeskus Stoa.
