Meet Helga, cabaret diva extraordinaire!

Tragedy and comedy meet as Helga invites us into her world, from the mundane details of her day to the fabulous memories of her life, skilfully performed by international circus artist Henni Kervinen and directed by Jenni Kallo, Artistic Director of the renowned Kallo Collective.

“Helga is poetic in its structure with a heart-warming message of hope at its core.”

“… brooding and quite melancholic but with a dash of wry humour including Helga’s hilarious come-to-bed eyes.”
