I Forgot What a Big House I Live in

Simo Heiskanen renders Mirkka Rekola’s poetry singing, reciting and dancing.

Minä unohdin miten suuressa talossa asun -stage performance combines movement and human voice. The past, the present and premonitions of the future meet. Mirkka Rekola’s poems recited and performed singing function as the common thread in the performance. The work, composed by Simo Heiskanen, weaves together life’s transience and the randomness of human memory. The dance steps of the past grow into a choreography that awakens remembrance. The visualization of the work – movement and costumes – create associations which are recurrent poetical images of Rekola’s poems – moods of the sea, changing of seasons. The work’s versatility in language and expression challenges viewers of all ages to be alert and to have an inner dialogue with Rekola’s poetry. Like Rekola’s poetry, this performance is not done in one go.
