ABOUT THE PERFORMERS
 

Tritonus Angelicus

Clown trio Tritonus Angelicus was born on the spring 2021, during the corona pause of the bigger clown choir. At the end of the summer the trio met the audience in the inner courtyard of senior homes, part of the program of Kansallisteatteri Touring Stage.. In the fall, when the corona situation was better, the trio continued part of the bigger clown choir of Metamorfoosi.

2019 MetaLAB founded a clown choir, that seeks the harmony of the clown voices. Clown Chorus is for all those performing Arts practitioners who have already started their voyage towards their inner clown. New members are taken in every fall and spring.

 

On the fall 2021 the program emphasizes happiness.

Music leader of the choir is Helena Leminen and the director of the clowns is Soile Mäkelä.

MetaPLATFORM:

Clown Workshop

Six clowns were born in the summer 2021, during the first two weeks of our long term clown workshop. In the fall, during many weekends, we continued to research the clown state and improvised material for the clown numbers presented tonight. The numbers have born from the personal ridicule of the performers... and they might have been influenced by the various skills of the performers (circus, music, recitation, skin art…).

Duration of the workshop: 142h

Teacher: Soile Mäkelä
