Artists Lotta Paavilainen and Stina Kopra are joinin gus for a residency to work on their upcoming performance – Twenty years later – still here! A public work in progress presentation will be given on 17th February. More information here.
About the performance
Twenty years later– still here! is an autobiographical two-woman show about the 20-year journey of two circus artists. It is a nostalgic, yet realistic, glimpse of the life in show-business. Behind all the glitter and glamour are countless hours of repetition, blood, sweat and tears.
