Nordic Puppet Ambassadors: ONLY ONE SUITCASE ALLOWED

15.-16.5.2021 Turku I

Only One Suitcase Allowed is a fusion of object theatre and live installation for one spectator at a time. It is a peep show in which viewers peer into secret, miniature worlds; a drama about people who embark on a voyage against their will, not knowing how or where it will end. In the course of a fifteen minute journey to an unknown destination, a safe and familiar environment turns hostile. Step by step the world closes its doors and the traveler is forced ever further from home. Her space in the world becomes smaller and smaller until finally there is none left.

Inspired by the story of Anne Frank the performance premiered in Rovaniemi and has toured around the world ever since. Last time it was seen in Helsinki August 2020.

“Laukkuihin rakennetut miniatyyrihuoneet ja liikkuvat objektit luovat mielikuvitukselle tilaa jättäviä, koskettavia tuokiokuvia. Laukkunäyttämöiden suljetut, hyvin rajatut maailmat ovat yhtä aikaa kauniita ja karmeita.” TS 19.11.2017
