Sivuhenkilöt: There’s no room for my wings

There’s no room for my wings

Sivuhenkilöt

Awkward situations at workplace

There’s no room for my wings, by the Sivuhenkilöt working group, is a new premiere in which limbs hanging in the air meet awkward situations, collapsing office furniture and love for a human being. It tells a tale of emotional exclusion and reveals how things buried within tend to come out in the worst possible situation.

The fictional workplace sells personalised mugs and wall decals. Live Laugh Love. Smile every day. Unlike the slogans on the mugs, the hopes and emotions of the company’s five employees do not stay in line but fly out like birds against windows. The performance consists of aerial acrobatics, physical theatre, wings, weight, laughter and shame.

Sivuhenkilöt is a group founded in 2016 to combine modern circus and theatre, to celebrate astounding abilities and to seek ambiguous stage scenes. The group’s first performance called Sivuhenkilöt (Sidekicks) premiered at Suomenlinna in 2016 and received glowing reviews.

The show is realised in co-operation with Helsinki Festival. Performances at Helsinki Festival on August 28 – 31.
