TIP-Fest 2018: Pohjatar

Erika Malkki

Tragicomedy about a woman and anger

Pohjatar is a woman shriveled by anger, alienating herself to build a wall between herself and the world. However, that doesn’t stop Pohjatar’s own demons from meddling in.

Pohjatar is a one woman show combining physical comedy and puppetry. The show is based on the myths of Kalevala’s Louhi, the mystical matriarch of Pohjola, the bringer of death and disease.
