OMNIPOTENS

The peroformance is available in English in 2017.

"The performance has a societal and political point of view, but it does not in the least provoke or agitate. It is reflective and thoroughly finished. Everything that is said using words or movement displays versatile thinking and a power of expression rising from it." - Annikki Alku, demokraatti.fi


Tuomo Railo's spring premiere of 2016 tackles the illusion of omnipotence, a psychiatric and mental state, in which violence turns into action that is justified with political goals.

The piece is both an essay on humanity and a ritualistic dance performance. It shakes up and evokes to think on one hand, and consoles and encourages into action for peace on the other.

Åsne Seierstad's book One of Us was used as background material for the piece. The book tells the story of the 2011 tragedy in Norway by means of the novel.
