Acting for Climate: BARK

BARK is a poetic, spectacular and thought provoking contemporary circus performance for a forest, an audience, and five performing artists.

BARK is a poetic, spectacular and thought provoking contemporary circus performance for a forest, an audience, and five performing artists.

Played site-specifically in and with your local forest, BARK is about reconnecting with each other and with nature. The forest, the soil and the trees are the main characters of the performance, and co-create the piece together with the performers, climate scientists and outside eyes.

The performance combines a physical expression of group acrobatics, vertical dance, dance and physical theatre with contemporary soundscapes and poetic text, all performed up in, between, with and around the trees. Through being nature, reconnecting, and living utopia, BARK aims to convey a sensory experience that can change perspectives on our human natures, as a part of the biosphere.

BARK will tour Finland by bike during August and September 2021.

The performance is a walk on a small path in the forest, and is unfortunately not accessible for baby strollers or wheelchairs. Please contact the organizers if you have special requests or needs and we will try to facilitate it.

In total you will walk about 2 km walk / 70 min.

Ideally pre-book your tickets; you can buy a ticket on site.

The artists encourage a climate-friendly form of transportation to and from the show: cycling, public transportation or carpool, if possible.
