Description Choreographer-dancer Jyrki Karttunen surrenders his body and mind to the aging diva Jemina.

Jemina – act as you've know her examines drag shows as a possibility for societal clownery, juxtaposing man and woman, day and night, glamour and mundane, real and fake. The performance is based on structured improvisation and inspired by stand-up comedy, soft porn cabaret and contemporary dance.
