Space/Place Theatre, Iowa City, Iowa, USA, 2001. Performance art piece inspired by the illustrative ‘ myth of origins’ described in canto 1 of the Finnish epic poem, The Kalevala. The visual translation of the text is a non-literal, poetic/ symbolic representation using chant, movement and sculptural elements. (Performance initially created in collaboration with Deanne Warnholtz-Wortman, Iowa City). Photos by David Van-Allen.
