Funny Things Before Panic
Duration: approx. 1 hour
In «Funny Things Before Panic», choreographer Liina Magnea and music producer Reetta Nummi (SITOI) explore the different stages of a panic attack. In form of a live performed four act audio play, they embody the symptoms as characters of a contemporary drama accompanied by a mash-up soundtrack.
Obsessed with the idea of the Gesamtkunstwerk, Liina Magnea makes dance and performance art, releases music under the name ‘Magnea’ and works as a film dramaturge. She gives vocal coachings for the Icelandic choir in Berlin and helps people suffering from addiction.
Reetta Nummi (SITOI) is a Finnish artist in the field of experimental music and contemporary art. In her work she examines vulnerability, carnality and social structures by bringing together elements of noise, poetry, electronic music and performance art.
