The premier performance of 'Metsän väki' was on May 9th, 2016 at the Lapinlahti former psychiatric hospital in Helsinki, Finland. The second floor corridor of the main building was used as a performance space. The historical and intimate space added its flavor to the performance but also brought with it some challenges. Many technical solutions were done on a 'low-tech' principle in this performance. All in all it was a good starting point for developing the 'Metsän väki' performance. There were roughly 30 people in the audience and we received superb audience feedback.
