Espoo City Theatre: 3 Portraits of Tomorrow - 3 Kuvaa Huomisesta
Writers Marko Järvikallas, Okko Leo, and Harri Virtanen have, over several years, developed a genre they have named ‘family sci-fi’. Their plays are visions of a future in which creatures of variable human genome content encounter each other as family members, as friends, and as lovers.
In these stories, the problems of tomorrow sound familiar: How to live in a relationship? How to navigate the workplace? How to be a man, a woman, a child, or a machine? How to live with one’s otherness, and with that of others’? How to make sense of alienation?
3 Portraits of Tomorrow is a co-production by Helsinki -based Theatre Quo Vadis, Rakastajat Theatre from Pori, and Espoo City Theatre. The performance consists of a series of three vignettes performed on the night.
