Leena Krohn: Tainaron
Tainaron is a story about a future that is already here but difficult for us to see.
An acquaintance of ours (Kati Outinen) is living as a tourist or immigrant in Tainaron, amidst a foreign way of life, where metamorphoses are commonplace and the borders between human, animal and plant flexible. She observes life in Tainaron with sleepy eyes and writes letters to those of us who are still here in the known world, blinded by our own reality.
Based on Leena Krohn’s breakthrough novel, director Essi Rossi and dramaturg Iida Hämeen-Anttila have created a multi-artistic stage depiction of a fantastic world after a great collapse. Starring Kati Outinen and Aino Venna, the stage opens layer by layer towards what is yet unknown: the future world and its diversity. Flowing through the entire performance is music specifically composed for the work by Venna.
Realised in co-operation with the Finnish National Theatre, Tainaron premieres on the Small Stage on 29 August 2018.
