Autonomy implies we endorse in others also the things we do not understand.
- Richard Sennett, Respect in a World of Inequality
Respect - Kunnioitus by Tuomo Railo is a stage performance in a form of dialogue and essay about respect as a cultural phenomenon, a societal force. The show is performed by artists originally from both Finland and outside Europe. Respect - Kunnioitus scans the challenges faced by individuals and the society when cultures mix. How do we express respect? How respect works – both in good and bad? Why do we experience lack of respect?
Respect is - to my understanding - simultaneously a clear and muddy concept. At it´s worst respect is something harmful, there are people murdered because of it, yet we need respect to be able to function as a society. As the world evolves we need to rethink and evaluate the structures, the direction, the whole constitution of the respect we express. I hope this performance works also as a modest guide to our efforts in cultivating our sense of humour. – Tuomo Railo
