Dark Drag offers a selection of performing arts from the shadier alleyways. We tell stories about emotions and identities through our words, bodies and music.

Dark Drag: Dreams throws the audience to the world of dreams. In daydreams and nightmares anything is possible – beautiful and strange, fascinating or dangerous. Let us transport you to the limits of the unconscious and to the depths of surrealism, safely and gently.

Dark Drag is an experimental performing arts platform combining corporeality, performing arts and live music since 2019, curated and produced by performer-artist Maaret Louhelainen. Previously, Dark Drag is presented at the Superwood Festival in October 2019 and Caisa Cultural Center in August 2021.
