Of being in the dark

Of being in the dark arises from a call to the woods and a fear of the dark. The performance is a journey that takes us to a forest at dusk, to the edge of darkness, wandering to the shadow region of street lamps. Of being in the dark is a site-sensitive performance about light pollution, darkness and the fear of the dark. It is a process-oriented project and a draft of a sustainable performance. 

 

The piece is a 2-hour-long guided walking tour that has so far taken place at and after sundown in Uutela, Helsinki.
