BLOCK THEATRE PERFORMANCE

IN YOUR HOME TOWN
Includes 35 min. performance
Price: Ask for more information and request an offer according to your needs; annukka ( at ) ko-koo-mo.fi

In block theatre, imagination, with the help of wooden blocks, guides the spectator to a range of different worlds. The non-verbal performance captures the audience, and the puppeteer, together with the music and the rest of the soundscape, breaths life to the blocks. 

 

Block theatre is a visual art form that stirs the viewer’s imagination. The performance opens new points of view for creativity, with the work of art gaining a new layer from each spectator’s unique interpretation.

 

The show is suitable for all ages. The show accommodates ca. 60 spectators. The show can be performed in an auditorium, a recreation room, or a similar space, where there is room for a 2m x 2m free space near to a power socket. It’s great if you can dim the room, but it’s not an absolute necessity. 
 
Performer: puppet artist Roosa Halme. The performer brings along the props and audio and lightning.
