Future visions for the stage – Dreams and struggles

How does the future of the stage look like? Or the futures of the stages? Our very first UA Talks x Kansis dives deep into questions around hopes and dreams as well as fictions and frictions.

As panelists we have three amazing artists, makers and thinkers: Laura Eklund Nhaga, Niko Hallikainen and Aune Kallinen. The discussion will be moderated by Olga Palo.

After the discussion you can enjoy tunes by DJ Renaz Ebrahimi.
