In June 2014 ten Finnish writers and two theater directors, Anna-Mari Karvonen and Akse Pettersson, met in downtown Helsinki.

First they read to each other.

Then some of them began to draw pictures on a large sheet of white paper.

One of the writers, Maria Matinmikko, decided to dance her poems.

An old typewriter was connected to a loudspeaker and turned writing into fantastic sounds. 

When Satu Taskinen was reading her novel Der perfekte Schweinsbraten, a tent popped up on stage.

Nobody knows what will happen, when the directors and the writers, Aina Bergroth, Pauliina Haasjoki, Kaisa Ijäs, Matti Kangaskoski, Maria Matinmikko, Riikka Pelo, Mikko Rimminen, Eino Santanen, Satu Taskinen and Henriikka Tavi, begin their second intense week of rehearsals on September 22.

This blog follows the process and the tour itinerary through Germany, Switzerland and Austria in October 2014. Stay tuned!
