New Performance Turku Festival: FUTURES

The theme of the New Performance Turku Festival 2019 was FUTURES. What kinds of new futures can we envision, dream and imagine as our worldview is currently in a dramatic process of evolving and changing? The festival aimed in looking at multiple futures from the point of view of performance art – and what kind of means and visions we have to understand and create our possible futures.
