Stories from Kalevala
with Christine Cooper, Petra Poutanen, and Markus Luukkonen

23.3 at 6pm Arkadia International Bookshop, Nervanderinkatu 11, Helsinki

It’s midnight. The guts of Lemminkäinen are laid out, and a raven croaks at the back of the room. The ancient ritual of myth-telling is brought screaming into the 21st century by Christine and Petra with voices, instruments and strange machines…. Christine is a respected British storyteller, currently studying here at the Sibelius Academy. She tells the stories simply and directly, in English, evoking fragments of ancient runo-melody with her violin.. Petra is a musician without borders – she weaves dark, messy electronic sounds in and around the stories. This is Kalevala as you have never heard it before.

Free entrance – donations welcome!
