TOGETHER IN THE UNIVERSE OF SOUND Festival at Maunula House on October 15-16 & 29-30

Liisa Pentti +Co and Oblivia gather their forces to organise the Together in the Universe of Sound event at Maunula House during two weekends in October, 15–16 and 29-30.

What is experimental music theatre in 2021? How do you work together across genre boundaries? Together in the Universe of Sound focuses on the dialogue between music and performing arts. Invisible connections, entertaining variations and surprising openings are born in the encounter between performing arts and music.

The event brings together Finnish and international guests who work innovatively with music and the performing arts. We have invited two European groups that combine contemporary music, performance and dance. Their works will be shown for the first time in Finland.

The programme includes performances, concerts, discussion and a long-awaited party. The performances are ticketed, other programme is free of charge. Festival pass (30/20 eur) and single tickets (15/10 eur) are on sale in our webshop. One can sign up also to the symposium there.
