CASE GALA [TAPAUS GAALA]
Myllyteatteri's 10the anniversary performance, Tapaus Gaala is a stage carusel devised from the childhood memories. The performance asks how the mind and memory functions. Through the "cases" of one family, the spectator is taken inside the common history and humanity - to the common mind.
Beside the ten actors on stage the spectator sees ten equal-looking, human size puppets. The carrousel of memory spins around as the the performance leads the spectator through the inner layers of the mind to the gala itself.
The visual design - puppets, scenography and costumes - are designed by a wonderful Polish artist, Lukasz Trzcinski.
The performance will visit Cricoteka, the performing arts' centre founded by Tadeusz Kantor, in Krakow, October 16th-17th, 2015.
The performances in Helsinki were during 10.10.-14.11.2014, in KokoTeatteri.
