English Speaking Single Parents Theater Excursion Tue 16 Nov

We will go see a play called ‘The Cleaners’: Cleaners is a performance based on stories of people who are working and living amongst us. The performance looks into society’s power structures from the point of view of the immigrants who work as cleaners in Finland. The performance studies what kind of movement is inspired by cleaning up. Cleaners is the final part of European theatre collective’s trilogy Invisible Finland which concentrates on who are allowed to be on the stage in Finland and whose stories are told in Finnish theatres.

The performance will be in English at 7pm at Aleksanterin Teatteri (Bulevardi 2327), with Finnish subtitles and is open for everyone. New English speakers warmly welcomed. Duration 1 h 40 mins.

Ticket price 20 € payable to us by 1 Oct. Child care organized as close as possible (more info later).
