[guest performance 03.03.2023 - in English]
Fixit, a work based on the history of the European Union, is a two-person performance consisting of monologue and songs. Fixit looks for entry points for understanding the cold war atmosphere, the one that made (some of) us Europeans in vastly different ways. Fixit is performed and created by Kaino Wennerstrand, with Murrettumeri on electric guitar and Jessie Bullivant on visual art.
After reading books on
NATO, EU, Cold War,
How does theory turn into art?
History -> Beauty???
After all that reading, what should I do?
Give a talk?
But you don’t go to a performance
to change your mind
And if you trust an artist
maybe you shouldn’t be let to vote???
The stage is not where I execute a plan
It's where I lose control so I could find it again
That's what theater and the EU have in common
“I’m an artist living in Kirkkonummi, Finland. Last year they gave me the state prize for media art (14 large yesssss). I once wrote about ANTI for AQNB, and in 2020, our artist duo Biitsi’s installation work Hopeasija was featured at the festival. I studied sound design in Theater Academy, Helsinki. I’ve done my fair share of exhibitions, also some performances. I don’t go out much. Fixit is the best work I’ve ever done, no need to check the earlier, off-brand stuff.”
