In Human Disguise is a co-creation by choreographer Eeva Muilu and theatre director Milja Sarkola. The piece will be performed at the Stage Festival’s Finnish Case-programme in August.
The premiere of the piece in 2009 brought about a lot of discussion and attention. In Human Disguise treats the body as an anatomical animal seen in awkward positions from strange angles. The piece explores the wonder and weirdness of the human form when the naked flesh is stripped of all social and cultual status symbols.
”What makes us human in other people’s eyes? What is human disguise? There’s enough sociological perspective for one piece.” Maria Säkö, Helsingin Sanomat 7.11.2009
