Varokaa, Punk tulee! (Watch Out, Punk is Coming!) combines urban storytelling, physical theatre and documentary theatre. By focusing on a cultural movement that described itself as “honest”, the piece also critically reflects on the parameters of “good” art. Through its stripped-down aesthetics and “unpolished” acting, the realization of the piece follows the ideals of the punk movement.
“The constant repetition used in both the script and the choreography
is a good effect – and a very punkish style…The performers are also skilled – they captivate as expressive storytellers and creators of dramatic situations” Maria Säkö, Skenet.fi, 23.04.2013
