Between dreamlike fiction and factual reality, Dimanche (Sunday) paints a witty and tender portrait of
humanity surprised by the uncontrollable forces of nature.
A family is about to spend their Sunday together, a family tradition. But the walls are shaking, strong winds and torrential rain rage outside and the storm has only just begun. Amidst this climatic chaos, the protagonists absurdly attempt to maintain a normal family life.
In doing so, Dimanche observes the ingenuity and stubbornness of humans as they try to preserve their day-to-day habits, going to absurd extremes to keep up a sense of normalcy despite the chaos of anecological collapse.
Meanwhile, three travelling wildlife reporters are doing their best to document the apocalypse. They film, with what little equipment they have, Earth’s last living species: three wild animals on the brink of extinction.
There is an audience discussion after the performance on Friday 8 April.
The show is realised in co-operation with Espoo City Theatre.
