Viivi Roiha


– Creation 2024 –


“V” is a performance dealing with the decision to break away from what was before. It is a personal diary blurred with imagination, showing moments of one moving onwards, and backwards, on the path of change.

The genuine, sensitive and highly physical performance by Viivi Roiha takes place on an empty stage. Permeable live music by Mika Pusse is an integral part of the performance.

The third performer, a short piece of a rope, transports the performer as well as the audience through different heights and inner states, towards the strength of daring to be vulnerable.
