Reverie - a state of  being pleasantly lost in one's thoughts

Reverie is the third and final piece of the performance trilogy on decision making that I created with Gnab Collective. The first part was the intimate one-on-one performance Hamlet private in 2012, the second Polku (The Path) in 2014. During the first two parts of the trilogy we focused on the moments before and during a decision and tried to articulate what happens during the process of making a decision. In the third part the theme of decision making fades into the background as we are looking for colours and tones that capture something of the feeling we might have when we look back on our lives.

Reverie was presented as a live video installation at Mad House Helsinki in March 2016. In June 2016, it is shown for the first time in a short film version first in Espoo (Space Invaders) and then in Berlin (Theaterdiscounter).
