1. Benedict Slotte: Proportiones absconditae

This music and photo piece encourages to notice the hidden proportions in music, architecture and graphic art. It describes both harmonically and graphically the long-term trend of simple ratios to more complex ones.

2. Normaaliparat – Peppi Reenkola, Sanni Saari

In their art Normaaliparat explore paranormal phenomena such as telepathy and telekinesis. They challenge people to pause for a moment and offer a new form of communication. In the telepahty-tent you will see performances and also get to try out your own paranormal skills.

3. Anna Matveinen: Lounge of Losing

”Sometimes it feels like nothing works. The world falls apart and strangers look like demons.”

An oasis for those who long for rest, sweetness and transformation. For a moment you can close your eyes, have some chocolate, breathe lavender scents and have a glass of bubbly.

7. Improvisaatioteatteri Juju: Odottavan laulu
