NouNous Festival is almost like a tradition, when in the first week of December friends of comedy are treated to Kallo Collective's unique, this year 5-day festival. The popular festival brings the best of Finnish and international physical comedy to Helsinki. The themes of performances take from the world of femininity through great illusions to the peak of comedy classic. All the shows are Helsinki premieres.
The festival starts with an enchanting Only Bones version of Marina Cherry from Montana. She balances between the extreme limitations of her creativity, theatrical and physical expression on a journey worth joining! Former rock star, nowadays a fakir Hamish by Mika Formunen balances between his special skills. But how is it possible to play accordion that hangs from your ears?
Paolo Nani’s classic and international hit The Letter has reached cult fame and has been called the encyclopedia of comedy. Show has toured in 40 countries and performed over 1500 times. Incredible Michael Might and his Amazing Magic Show takes to a very different journey, the world of magic! Suitable for the whole family.
This year there are two demos; Emma Castrén’s Gynecologist is an adventure into the inner world of the body and Viivi Roiha’s V++ plays with stereotypes of aerial acrobatics.
For the first time the festival presents circus-themed movies. Mad in Finland, a documentary-fiction by Elice Abonce Muhonen and Frédéric Barrett, former circus artist’s first feature Bonnet D’Homme.
The festival is curated by circus artists Jenni Kallo and Thom Monckton.
Tickets 6,50-22,50€, serial ticket 50€ from Tiketti, demos have voluntary fee, and audience capacity is limited to 50 people.
