Emote is a emotions for voice, percussion and video.
"Intellectually stimulating and teasingly funny art of our time."
"This three-hour, precisely timed sound structure is a confusing, constantly moving deconstruction of language, voice and sound. […] The bizarre fascination that the spectacle has created will not get out of your head so quickly."
"Voice Box was full of tongue in cheek [...] that allowed the audience to fully join in."
"The avant-garde business trip to the green creates a situational border experience with a feel-good program."
"The audience […] experiences an masterfull musical performance, which is then deconstructed in an irritating sequence of events at different locations in a deliberately bizarre manner."
"Delightful and playful experimental opera from young Finnish composer"
"The most enthusiastic reception got 'ettette' by Miika Hyytiäinen"
"Genuinely avantgardistic German music theatre."
"Musically the performance is excellent."
"Miika Hyytiäinen has composed the score which is full of rich elements."
In classical opera, people go mad all the time but that is not the presentation that we need. Miika Hyytiäinen, Emma Kuntsi and Alice Belugou use experimental music theatre to show that our mental orders are in continuous flux – indeed, the order is just an illusion created by our brains. Every day we need a new strategy to live in this unordered thing we call reality. Voice, kantele and harp share some found and lived, public and personal experiences.
