Let’s celebrate Finland!
On 6 December 2017, Finland will turn 100. And the day after, on 7 December, we will celebrate her in style at Rauhanasema in Pasila. With a Finnbrit festivity programme, and wine and nibbles. Homage to Finland – in English!
But we need a cast and programme. In other words – we need you! So let’s meet and put a programme together. Time is short, so please come to the meeting with at least some idea of what you’d like to do, the more detailed the better.
This is what we’re looking for:
- short plays, sketches, monologues, poetry, music
- somehow related to at least one of the themes ‘Finland’ or ‘independence’
- length max. 15 mins
- minimal set & tech requirements (the venue has no theatre lighting or soundboard)
Please also have some idea of how many people you’d require and whether you’d need any budget for performance rights, costumes, props, etc.
Aside from a joint dress rehearsal (provisionally on 3 December), you will mainly be responsible for arranging your own rehearsals for each piece among yourselves. Self-direction is therefore both permissible and encouraged; and those proposing solo pieces are encouraged to meet up with other solo performers for some feedback rehearsals.
See you in the FINNBRIT Club Room (Fredrikinkatu 20 A 9) on Monday 16 October 2017 at 6 pm.
