Feel Helsinki: Clowning

Saturday, June 8, 2019 - 12:00 to 15:00
Music Centre, Päälämpiö
Free entry
Hetki is a performance lasting 10 to 20 minutes combining contact with the audience and performers’ movement improvisation

How big can a small encounter be?

The performance is based on clowning, which is something that both of the performers have trained as part of their acting studies. The performance gently encourages the audience to participate, and it hopes to create a space for a joint moment and an encounter that happens in the moment at the Helsinki Music Centre lobby. The performance is dynamic and shaped fluidly based on the encounters and impulses taking place in the space.

Performers: Nenna Tyni and Sara-Maria Pirhonen

The performance can be seen in the main foyer among the crowd at 12:00, 13:00 and 14:00.


Feel Helsinki is a new urban festival for the whole family, taking place at the Helsinki Music Centre on 8 June. Uniarts Helsinki organises well over a thousand events for the public on a yearly basis, but Feel Helsinki is the first opportunity to enjoy the talents of the university’s students and alumni in one place through a day-long event. The festival has program that is especially tailored for children.

Feel Helsinki invites people to come together and engage all of their senses by enjoying food, wine, art and meaningful discussions. The main partner in the event is the Viini magazine, which will turn the Helsinki Music Centre into a hub of interesting pop-up restaurants, offering delicious menus.
