"So how do you do in Finland? Well it depends when you're asking"
Our first performance in collaboration entitled "So how do you do in Finland? Well it depends when you're asking" was presented in Sirkka on 11.9.2015.
It is a piece in 6 acts, that deals with the tides of identity and culture, in an omelette of situations of current affairs and personal experiences.
