The third NEW PERFORMANCE NIGHTS performance club discusses humanity, animality and non-human agents in performances, post-humanistic lecture and animalistic music.



The Animals of Our Lives is an experiential performance about the relationships between humans and animals. The starting point of the performance is the idea that our humanity begins and evolves in constant encounters with other species. We spend our lives around animals, and every animal we meet changes our way of being human. During the performance we will summon animals that have affected us and spend a moment among them.

Saara Hannulla is a live artist and researcher from Helsinki, Finland. In her work she aims to create spaces and situations that enable new kind of relationsips between people and other species.


From Bark Til Tail 
is a half-an-hour long vocal performance of someone in cage, the cage being in his mind.

Juha Valkeapää is a performance and sound artist from Helsinki, Finland.
