Description Compañía´s ensemble “Letters from an Island” takes over Seurasaari. The work, dealing with questions of Finnishness, takes the audience around Seurasaari, to performances of artists with different backgrounds. Each artist´s viewpoint to Finnishness is based on his/her personal history, and how Finnishness looks like in that light. Irony, roughness and carnivalism are present, as typical to the ensemble’s works.
