ARCTIC

HELPLESS BURNING THING COLLABORATION

ROOPE HATTU

HANNA KAIHLANEN

2015-2016 

Helpless Burning Thing Collaboration was a poetry/film collaboration based in Helsinki, Finland and Hamburg, Germany. 

 

ARCTIC was a project about the northern habitat, culture and climate change. The purpose was to dare the audience to look deep into themselves and into their rural environment of the north. All of the ethnic groups, languages, views of the wilderness that have been modified and lost because of industrialism, capitalism and tourism.

The performance included a piece from filmmaker Hanna Kaihlanen and music and poetry from Roope Hattu. Choosing to perform back to the audience was a clear message from the artist's that they were also being challenged to the material equally with the audience
