A Friend from Ethiopia

Working group Pictures

A touching new musical theatre piece with a visionary take on today’s shared reality, A Friend from Ethiopia juxtaposes refugees and undocumented migrants with climate crisis and mass extinction. This interdisciplinary work revolves around the concept of the undocumented migrant and the notion that ”we are all Ethiopians”.

Combining various art forms and genres from contemporary dance to live art, music and literature, A Friend from Ethiopia is a fusion of Sanna Kekäläinen’s new-materialistic views, Jussi Tuurna’s approach to musical theatre and Kari Hukkila’s postdramatic playwriting.
