Ketjureaktio (2012)

Ketjureaktio – a poetic, physical and visual performance

Ketjureaktio (engl. chain reaction) is a solo performance directed by Raisa Foster and performed by Timo Olavi Karvonen. The poetic performance combines physical and visual theatre. Along with movement explorations Katri Schadewitz’s poems give a starting point for the performance. Lighting is designed by Jere Mönkkönen.

The performance does not have a clear plot, but it is a montage of strong but at the same time delicate portrayal of the search of oneself. Who am I? Which one is my reflection?

 The poetic performance explores and expresses the experiences of loneliness and alterity. The physical expression draws the individual experiences together, forming a map of universal perceptions and affections. Perhaps the random acts start to form a coherent story – my story. What is supporting me?
