I’m So Here – A Storywalk Performance

Story Sharing Universum presents

I’m So Here – A Storywalk performance about identity

In this strange place I ended up in…

do I look the same?

do I feel the same?

do I think the same?

do I act the same?

is this still me?

I´m So Here is a series of performances whose main themes are the individual and cultural identities from the perspective of the newcomer. How have I been received in the country and society where I moved or fled, and how has it affected me? What do I carry with me from my background and how do I and my identity change in the new culture and who then have I become?

I´m So Here invites to an immersive experience outside the walls of a traditional theater. The performances consist of site-specific story walks in which viewers get to experience the stories of the performers in different outdoor locations around Helsinki. The different environments influence the mood of the performances and takes the audience on a journey of discovery. As with all Story Sharing Universum performances, here too the audience has the opportunity to participate.

Directed by Max Bremer, Markus Luukkonen and Åsa Nybo.
