INFO

A powerfully compelling show about dogma.

One teacher. Five students. Five desks. Director Reetta Honkakoski mines her personal lived experience of a cult in this meticulous ensemble piece about the seductive power of discipline, hierarchy, mind control and the search for an ultimate truth. Praised by audiences and critics alike for their mastery of physical expression, the Finnish company exposes the universal mechanics of power in political and spiritual cults. Expect sharp, strong and poignant ensemble work.
