4 FLOORS OF WHORES
Breaking the frames and looking far beyond the canon of performance art and the nature of Finnish public gatherings, niXXXavuori takes a romantic, snowy image of a nation and turns it into a highly flammable study of the connections of shame and guilt with a national identity.
4 Floors of Whores brings a baseball bat into the discussion concerning Finnish theatre, its imagery and classics. The group’s aesthetics and working methods are a crash-mix of physical theatre, contemporary choreography, sound design and performance art spiced up with slices of pop culture, sensuality, compassion and bad manners.
Dreams, hubris and pleasure bring about a series of fragmented landscapes which evolve into compositions of moods and conditions.
”Forget Niskavuori… or don’t! Let go and experience this work through Niskavuori.”
