by Rosanna Liuski - July 27, 2022

Olen suomalainen tuo Kari Tapion elämän lavalle iloineen ja suruineen, kuten ohjaaja-koreografi Osku Heiksanen lupaa käsiohjelmassa. Myös mielenkiintoista oli lukea, että Karin Tapion poika Joona on auttanut esityksen teossa, jakaen muistoja isästään. Esitys on saanut ensi-iltansa 2019....

BWW Review: The Hobbit at Turku is a Solid Fantasy Adventure Photo BWW Review: The Hobbit at Turku is a Solid Fantasy Adventure
by Rosanna Liuski - April 04, 2022

Unlike the Lord of the Rings, the Hobbit is a book targeted for children. Thus the crew had seemingly made a choice to stay true to its source material. Things are kept simple and even the most scary stone-trolls are made less scary with a funny accent. Gandalf comes forth to tell the story as if a ...

by Rosanna Liuski - March 11, 2022

Marian tunnustus - muistokirjoitus hevoselle on vakuuttava kotimainen uutuusteos. Sen yksi inspiraation lähteistä on Eeva Mesiäisen elämäkerta Maria Kajavan pitkä taival, joka kertoo inkerinsuomalaisesta Mariasta. Hänellä oli poikkeuksellinen palo luterilaisen seurakunnan perustamiseen aikana, jollo...

Review and Analysis: 1,718 words on LOU SALOME at KOM-Theatre Photo Review and Analysis: 1,718 words on LOU SALOME at KOM-Theatre
by Rosanna Liuski - November 06, 2021

A performance starts as early as in the green room (lämpiö). Everything was lit with a subtle, almost unnoticeable red light. It's the color of bravery and the femininity, a color of a sacrifice - though before the 1940s it was the color of the masculine....

Tuukka Vasama and Timo Ruuskanen are the clown pair on stage, named Mike and Zin. They have also done the dramaturgy work and are clearly professionals in clownery.
