Performance archive 2016 Valtteri Raekallio: Neuromaani
Valtteri Raekallio's physical theatre of the mind – based on the novel by Jaakko Yli-Juonikas
The world keeps changing – but that is not your headache, not if you have a Shimeron® to go with you. A seven-day cruise on the Caribbean in great company. How good does that sound? We offer this and much more as a reward to the staff and the students of your clinic. Travel and personal accident insurance is included. Protect your brain from concussion, not life! ‒ STYX-Institute, Axicon Avertis & Shimeron Group
Neuromaani is a multi-art performance based on the award-winning 2012 novel by Jaakko Yli-Juonikas. The immersive performance combines elements of contemporary dance, theatre, radio play, live action role play and art installation, and is set in the buildings of Maria Hospital in Helsinki, where it assumes the form of a multi-layered labyrinth of imagination and reality.
You hear a voice inside your head – but it is not the voice of reason. Neuromaani is an organic fabric shaped by the decisions made by each individual spectator – a performance-art hall of mirrors, a kaleidoscope, a ghost train, a sensory deprivation tank and a roller coaster in one. Let the voice inside your head guide you to the depths of the brain.
