Linda#faceinthemirror is a collaborative stage production conceptualized by visual artist Tero Puha and choreographer/dancer Jyrki Haapala. The project that combines various art forms is a journey into the world of social media and its illusions. The obsessions and pressures with celebrity and body image create the main themes for this innovative stage production.  Composer Juissi Vainiola together with singer Minna Karttunen create an intriguing live-on-stage soundscape. Other collaborators are visual artist Julia Suikki, fashion designer Teemu Muurimäki and make up artist

Piritta Hirvanen.

 

The central character in the work is a fictional actress and celebrity Linda (played by transgender visual artist Julia Suikki). Dancer Jyrki Haapala portrays a man deeply in awe of Linda and her social media world. The man´s obsessions with Linda soon begin to alter his sense of reality and finally their stories intertwine in surprising manner.

 

Linda#faceinthemirror is a spin-off from multidisciplinary Love and Lust Museum- project.
