The 19th iteration of the international theatre festival Baltic Circle takes place from the 18 to the 26 November 2022 in Helsinki, Finland. The lineup includes a total of eight premieres, as well as Arctic and European guest performances.
Baltic Circle 2022 is being organised in the midst of crises. This said, the festival promotes togetherness, and creates action towards taking radical care of the environment and its communities. The general themes of encounter and community echo throughout the programme.
Constructions within the world of art will also be reassessed through works produced as part of Baltic Circle’s Coming Stage initiative. The rampa associations working group, mobilised by Isa Hukka, questions the ethos of constant productivity, and invites the audience to observe the group’s examinations on care, radical accessibility, and agency. The working group’s 2-day event inviting precarious perspectives features multiple different performances by the working group members. Coming Stage is a four-year initiative funded by Kone Foundation. The intention behind the project is to transform stages into more diverse ones, and to establish more sustainable practices in the field of performing arts.
