Viljami Nissi: Emotional Karaoke
Durational performance, for one audience member at a time
Saturday 22.9. between 18-21
Manilla Courtyard, Itäinen Rantakatu 64

Emotional Karaoke is a participatory performance that offers the viewers a chance to sing their own power songs alone in a soundproof space, to express their feelings freely, to be free and to be energized by singing karaoke. Emotional Karaoke is what ordinary karaoke could be at its best – a performance to yourself according to your own needs.

Viljami Nissi (b. 1994, Kannus) lives and works in Helsinki, and studies performance art at Kankaanpää art school.

“I work in variable ways with variable mediums and variable themes. I tend to go through the works and thematics very quickly and I constantly move on towards new ideas.

My art is experiential, sometimes participatory and often norm breaking.”
