International co-production’s premiere in Finland!
The concept of untamed mind and the concept of behavioral and mental disorders and codependency is what Yellow Buoy Company explore in their new work. The performance depicts the human mind with its constraints and struggles. It is a combination of contemporary dance, puppetry and audio-visual elements. The world of the performance is grotesque and dark with a comedic undertone.
Humans have around fifty thousand separate thoughts each day, many of them on the same topic. If each thought is a branch, the attention of our conscious mind is like a monkey who is swinging from branch to branch all day long.
Hanuman is a divine monkey. By killing all the evil thoughts with its determination it lays a firm foundation for the kingdom of god in the body.
