'Metsän väki' was performed at the Finnish Nature Centre Haltia on August 27th, 2016 as a part of the Finnish Nature Day event. The Finnish Nature day is a nationwide event which was celebrated for the fourth time this year. There were two short 'Metsän väki' performances at Haltia's Main Exhibiton Hall during the day. There was no dancer in these performances, but there was a panorama wall with changing landscape images as well as projected images of Jenni Tieaho's works on one wall of the exhibition hall. Below are a few photos of the performance location.
It was exciting to create the performance in this space. We used various areas of the exhibition hall in the performance, and the audience could move freely in the space. We received assistance from Haltia's staff in preparing the performance, we also had our own sound technician. Haltia is surrounded by the Nuuksio national park. The centre provided a fitting environment for the performance, and the audience seemed to enjoy it.
