Breath in, Sister!

Hanna Lahtinen ja Helena Murtonen-Leppä

– Six lyrical and narrative perspectives on femininity

The themes of the two women`s intense performance arise from hidden feelings related to femininity, which are inadequacy, failure as a mother, loneliness, euphoria, abuse and fear of running out of time. Even though the whole is thematically dark, the handling is hopeful and sometimes almost carnivalesque. The spoken parts and songs with piano accompaniment work as complementary and overlapping pairs.

The songs are composed, arranged and written by musician Hanna Lahtinen. Texts and spoken parts by Helena Murtonen-Leppä.
