Description The pivotal element on the stage is an old 1970’s orange dome tent.

From the tent, the stage opens up for the audience as a locus of memory and the meaning of memory.

The themes of the work are universal. The inside and the outside, borderline and marginal identities and global political conflicts are all interlaced within the mental landscape.

Kekäläinen, the beast, the performer (protagonista) and the subject of the event, observes the world from the viewpoint of exaggeration and catastrophe.
