The 2018 premiere production of VäkeväKollektiivi goes round and round in traditional circles through dance, music and video art – a reimagining of a historical documentary, here and now. The production forms part of the artistically oriented post-graduate studies of folk musician Emilia Lajunen at the Sibelius Academy. Joining her are Routa Company from Kajaani.
