Dalen. På Jorden.

A culinary concert with smoked forest food from the wild food chef Jyrki Tsutsunen.

The theme is current: the planetary emergency. The work is based on the idea of theatre director Dan Henriksson and it combines smoked forest food by the wild food chef Jyrki Tsutsunen with musical enjoyment.  

When the clock is ticking and the Earth's fever rises, it looks dark.
We seek the light, the hope and the comfort - there is still time. Right now.

Klockriketeatren's international ensemble is strengthened with Ksenia Peretrukhina, one of Russia's leading scenographers, award-winning – and today in exile in Finland. Together with Tom Lönnqvist (sound), Darina Rodionova (video) and Vilma Vantola (lights), she creates an suggestive atmosphere in the hall. Wild food chef Jyrki Tsutsunen is known for his culinary food from the forest and art projects.

Mirva Ormin and Martin Ormin most recently created the music for the performance Marat/Sade, now they are joined by top Colombian harpist Natalia Castrillón, who lives in Finland, and percussionist Amanda Blomqvist. Actor Carl Alm is the evening's host, while theater director Dan Henriksson is responsible for direction and concept.

The forest is our heritage. It is our responsibility to take care of it.
