Miika Hyytiäinen + Jaakko Nousiainen:
La Figure de la Terre
Suitable for Non-German Speakers

Two journeys, two strangers: the French scientist Maupertuis travels to Lappland to determine the shape of the earth. He meets Christine Planström, a young woman from the northern wilderness, who accompanies him back to the sophisticated world of the Parisian salons after his research. The two Finn’s, Miika Hyytiäinen and Jaakko Nousiainen, musical theater piece examines the concepts of foreigness, identity and survival. The piece interprets Baroque quotations using contemporary music sources. Singers, a cembalo and a Baroque trio interact with echoes, sounds and noises. The show will be accompanied by a real-time generated video performance.
