They say that evil does not come uninvited, but why is there a magic ball on the living room floor? Would you make a deal with the devil or raise a racket?

With invisible demons and evil spirits on the loose, it is time for the masters of the house to take action.

Inspired by folklorist Pasi Klemettinen’s (PhD with a doctoral thesis on rampant demons) book Karjalan Räyhähenget ("Karelian Poltergeists"), the concert takes you to the dark side of Karelian storytelling tradition through dance, song and music.

Performed by nearly 100 dancers and musicians from the PKN Pääkaupungin Karjalaiset Nuoret youth association.
