– There is no spectator, they melted away by staring at the fireplace video too close for too long.

Uraanilamppu (Uranium Lamp) is the personal magic lamp of each spectator. It reveals who we are and what we truly want when we no longer want anything. By answering the call of Uraanilamppu, the spectator reaches their inner voice, the secret core of their consciousness.

Uraanilamppu is a visionary performance mixing dance and text. It is based on the beloved and nourishing short stories by the philosopher and therapist Harry Salmenniemi. The performance devised by choreographer, activist and thinker Valtteri Raekallio hands its spectators keys to everyday living, life management and reaching one's goals.

The strong choreography by Valtteri Raekallio and Jarkko Mandelin makes the spectator into an experiencer, and the experiencer into a seer. Uraanilamppu reveals the hidden beauty of an office, a military tent and urban nature. The combination of mystical dancing, text and movement makes Oil Silo 468 ripple with the energy of love from the floor to the ceiling, and gives you the answers to life’s biggest questions.
